“In this essay”, writes the author, “I have tried to give a brief sketch of the problems confronting modern man because of changes in the world-view of physics and science. These problems endow historical relations with a quite special significance, and the reader is therefore introduced to original sources so that he may himself follow these changes in the attitude of science.”
