Science and Method

Poincaré, Henri

One of the great mathematicians of his age, Poincaré here deals with a variety of issues of methodology: the selection of facts for study, the calculation of errors, and the use of statistical methods to compensate for errors. It also contains an attack on logicism in the foundations of mathematics, and an early account of the significance of methodology of the “new mechanics” of radioactive decay.
