New PDF release: String Theory and the Scientific Method

By Richard Dawid

String conception has performed a hugely influential position in theoretical physics for almost 3 a long time and has considerably altered our view of the simple construction rules of the Universe. notwithstanding, the idea continues to be empirically unconfirmed, and is anticipated to stay so for the foreseeable destiny. So why do string theorists have the sort of robust trust of their conception? This publication explores this question, providing a singular perception into the character of thought evaluate itself. Dawid methods the subject from a special place, having large event in either philosophy and high-energy physics. He argues that string concept is simply the main conspicuous instance of a few theories in high-energy physics the place non-empirical conception evaluation has an enormous half to play. aimed toward physicists and philosophers of technology, the booklet doesn't use mathematical formalism and explains such a lot technical terms.
