  2. Max Jammer (2008). Concepts D’Espace: Une Histoire des Théories de L’Espace En Physique. Vrin.
    « Concepts d’espace » est un classique de la philosophie et de l’histoire des sciences. Enrichi d’une célèbre préface d’Albert Einstein, l’ouvrage de Max Jammer couvre près de vingt-cinq siècles d’élaboration du concept d’espace physique. L’auteur allie la méthode historique à la méthode philosophique dans l’analyse des différentes traditions scientifique et philosophique, et c’est là l’originalité de ce travail dont la cohérence tient à l’unité d’une question sans cesse remise sur le métier : le problème de l’espace dans la théorie (...)

  3. Max Jammer (2006). Concepts of Simultaneity: From Antiquity to Einstein and Beyond. Johns Hopkins University Press.
    Max Jammer's Concepts of Simultaneity presents a comprehensive, accessible account of the historical development of an important and controversial concept -- which played a critical role in initiating modern theoretical physics -- from the days of Egyptian hieroglyphs through to Einstein's work in 1905, and beyond. Beginning with the use of the concept of simultaneity in ancient Egypt and in the Bible, the study discusses its role in Greek and medieval philosophy as well as its significance in Newtonian physics and (...)

  5. Max Jammer (2004). The Strange Story of the Concept Which Inaugurated Modern Theoretical Physics. Foundations of Physics 34 (11):1617-1641.
    ‘‘The strange Story of the Concept which inaugurated Modern Theoretical Physics’’ is the title of a lecture which I delivered on the invitation of Professor Franco Selleri at the University of Bari about 20 years ago. Since Professor Selleri himself has written several interesting papers on this concept and since the centennial of the birth of modern theoretical physics will be celebrated soon, I found it appropriate to dedicate this essay, containing so far unpublished critical and historical comments on this (...)

  10. Max Jammer (1991). Sir Karl Popper and His Philosophy of Physics. Foundations of Physics 21 (12):1357-1368.
    The eminent mathematical physicist Sir Hermann Bondi once said: “There is no more to science than its method, and there is no more to its method than Popper has said.” Indeed, many regard Sir Karl Raimund Popper the greatest philosopher of science in our generation. Much of what Popper “has said” refers to physics, but physicists, generally speaking, have little knowledge of what he has said. True, Popper's philosophy of science and, in particular, his realistic interpretation of quantum mechanics deviates (...)
