The New Scientific Spirit

Arthur Goldhammer, Translator, Gaston Bachelard, Author Beacon Press (MA) $9.95 (214p) ISBN 978-0-8070-1501-8
Bachelard, a French chemist turned philosopher who died in 1962, wrote about esthetics, poetics, science and psychoanalysis at a time when the new quantam theory and the theory of relativity were creating cultural upheaval. Bachelard's musings on time, space, causality and creative intuition are compatible with the mainstream of today's scientific thinking. PW recommended The New Scientific Spirit, noting that ""Goldhammer's smooth translation brings Bachelard's elusive ideas within reach.'' (March)
