The book Ernst Mach – Physics – Philosophy – Education is a sequel to Brno Ernst Mach Days 2008 that took place in the year of the 170th anniversary of his birth in Brno-Chrlice.
Ernst Mach was a world famed scientist in the field of experimental physics and philosopher of science, as well as an outstanding teacher and thinker.
The book comprises papers by experts in different disciplines specialising in fields that brought fame to Ernst Mach.
The first section mapping places and events related to his life and work is followed by three sections named Physics, Philosophy and Education. The section Physics covers topics of Mach’s number, Mach’s principle and Mach’s atomism; the section Philosophy maps his way from physics through physiology (perceptions and sensing) to psychology and finally philosophy, showing their use in education. Finally, Education includes papers with Mach-Newtonian topics, as well as those dealing with issues of categorising the contents of natural science education.
