Physics and Metaphysics: Theories of Space and Time by J. Trusted

Physics and Metaphysics illuminates the relationship between metaphysical beliefs and scientific inquiry into the nature of the cosmos, particularly the nature of space and time. Jennifer Trusted examines the history of science from the 11th century to the

present to illustrate the way religious and mystical beliefs, as well as philosophical speculation, have motivated scientists and inspired their scientific inquiries.

The book presupposes no technical knowledge of either philosophy or science. It is an ideal introduction to

science and the important forces that have shaped its history and ideas.
