Geometry and Chronometry in Philosophical Perspective
In this volume Professor Grünbaum substantially extends and comments upon his essay “Geometry, Chronometry, and Empiricism,” which was first published in Volume III of the Minnesota Studies in the Philosophy of Science. Commenting on the essay when it first appeared J. J. C. Smart wrote in Mind (England): “In my opinion Adolf Grünbaum’s paper … supersedes nearly all that has been written on the logical status of physical geometry and chronometry.” The full text of the essay is given here with the author’s extension of it and his discussion of some of the critical comment it has evoked, particularly, a critique published by Hilary Putnam. Adolph Grünbaum is Andrew Mellon Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh and the current president of the Philosophy of Science Association.
