    Why Physical Space has Three Dimensions.G. J. Whitrow - 1955 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 6 (21):13-31.
    And the first step of the Peripatetick argument is that, where Aristotle proveth the integrity and perfection of the World, telling us, that it is not a simple line, nor a bare superficies, but a body adorned with Longitude, Latitude and Profundity; and because there are no more dimensions but these three; the World having them, hath all, and having all, is to be concluded perfect. And again, that by simple length, that magnitude is constituted, which is called a line, (...)

    What is Time?G. J. Whitrow - 1972 - Thames & Hudson.
    linear time is inadequate to account for all events in our world. In particular, the idea that time may have more than one dimension has been invoked by J. W. Dunne, in his well-known book An Experiment with Time, to justify his claim that ...

    On the Synthetic Aspect of Mathematics.G. J. Whitrow - 1950 - Philosophy 25 (95):326 - 330.
    In the most recent edition of Language, Truth and Logic , Professor A. J. Ayer still maintains that pure mathematics is analytic, being in fact merely a vast system of tautology. He is much more confident about this than are most contemporary professional mathematicians who have investigated the foundations of their subject. Following the breakdown of the efforts both of Frege and of Russell and Whitehead to derive pure mathematics from logic, i.e. to prove that the denial of any one (...)

    The Epistemological Foundations of Natural Philosophy.G. J. Whitrow - 1946 - Philosophy 21 (78):5 - 28.
    The history of Natural Philosophy is dominated by a paradox; broadly speaking, a vast increase in its range of application to the external world has been accompanied by a sweeping simplification in its basic assumptions. From the standpoint of Empiricism this dual development appears utterly mysterious. On the other hand, Rationalism, which seeks to demonstrate the metaphysical necessity of natural law, and hence might throw light on this development, has been generally discredited, particularly by men of science. It is not (...)
