This was a major work of the physicist turned philosopher, Philipp Frank. Already known for his papers on mathematical physics, and for his collaboration with the philosophers and scientists in the Vienna Circle, Frank developed his early essays of 1907-08 on causal law and human experience into this expository and critical treatise of 1931. How useful the logical empiricist requirement to formulate a "scientific philosophy" was, is demonstrated by Frank's clarifications of the strengths as well as limitations of the several concepts linked to causal explanation, and indeed by his analysis of misuse, what he called metaphysical, obscure misinterpretations. Among the historically significant topics in this classical treatise on science and its humanist import are Laplace's determinist hypothesis, loss of causal simplicity in field concept, causality and miracles, lawfulness in biology, cause and chance, conservation laws and causal laws, irreversibility of natural processes, and "true" world. The work is a classical treatise and should therefore be of interest to university collections in philosophy, physics and history of science. It should appeal to philosophers of science, modern empiricists, historians of science and those interested in the history of the Vienna Circle.Edited by Robert S.Cohen.Translated by Marie Neurath and Robert S.Cohen.299pp.

Raso, Jack; Barrett, Stephen
In writing "Mystical Diets", author Jack Raso, trained in scientific reasoning and a registered dietician, offers an accessible yet authoritative tool to assist laypersons and health professionals in making sound decisions regarding the appropriateness (or inappropriateness) of a number of fringe nutritional programs. With Mr. Raso's help, these decisions can now be based not only on scientific standards of scientific validity, but on the likelihood of subjective benefits as well."Mystical Diets" details the history, philosophy, and manifestations of macrobiotics, natural hygiene, the Edgar Cayce tradition, Ayurvedic medicine, Anthroposophical medicine, the Gerson therapy, the Matol movement and much more. Through the generous use of quotations, proponents of the various alternative-nutrition systems, past and present, are allowed to speak for themselves. And the author's thorough discussion of the most up-to-date research into health and diet helps readers make up their own minds about foods, herbs, vitamins, minerals, and the claims made by proponents of alternative dietetics.
