  1. Ernst Mach leaves 'the church of physics'.John Blackmore - 1989 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 40 (4):519-540.
    A study of the published and unpublished parts of Ernst Mach's last notebook (1910–14) suggests that Max Planck's attack (1908–11) provoked Mach into opposing ‘The Church of Physics’ more strongly than previously realized. Shortly after Mach threatened to leave the discipline if belief in atoms were required. Albert Einstein tried to persuade him to accept atomism (September 1910). Mach declined to mention Einstein again in his publications and increasingly criticized ‘The Church of Physics’. Evidence that Mach opposed relativity theory and (...)

    Boltzmann and epistemology.John Blackmore - 1999 - Synthese 119 (1-2):157-189.
    This paper is an attempt to clarify why Ludwig Boltzmann from about 1895 to 1905 seemed to adopt a series of extreme epistemological positions, ranging from phenomenalism to pragmatism, while emphatically rejecting what he called ‘metaphysics’ (by which he meant all traditional philosophy). He concluded that all philosophical differences were merely linguistic and most were ultimately meaningless. But at about the time that young Ludwig Wittgenstein began absorbing these desperate ideas (1905), Boltzmann himself under the influence of Franz Brentano seemed (...)

    Three autobiographical manuscripts by Ernst Mach.John T. Blackmore - 1978 - Annals of Science 35 (4):401-418.
    This paper is a collection of original source material for the use of all scholars interested in understanding Ernst Mach's life as an aid to comprehending his unique and controversial impact on the development of modern physics and both the history and philosophy of science. The documents are complete; and to encourage points of view other than my own, I have listed a number of very recent articles in my footnotes which reflect a wide spectrum of opinion on Ernst Mach (...)

    Philosophy as Part of Internal History of Science.John T. Blackmore - 1983 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 13 (1):17-46.
    The primary purpose of the paper is to try to prove that it is impossible to write or understand history without making epistemological and ontological assumptions, In particular assumptions about whether physical objects and processes are within or beyond the limits of what can be made empirical or conscious.

    Should we abolish the distinction between science and metaphysics?John T. Blackmore - 1983 - Philosophia 12 (3-4):393-400.
    The distinction between science and metaphysics tends to be invidious and is often used to set up a prejudice against foundation theory in general and indirect realism in particular. It should probably be replaced by distinctions between idealized and non-Idealized science on the one side and direct and indirect foundation theory on the other.
