Book News Annotation:
A collection of 17 essays by Mexican philosophers and historians of science, three examining science in the country itself, but the others considering social studies, the natural sciences, and mathematics in general. The topics include logic in Mexico, Gabino Barreda and the introduction of Darwinism in Mexico, psychoanalysis and Marxism, the development of the concept of genetic mutation and its evolutionary implications, Galileo's use of idealized laws in physics, the relations of Hilbert's second and tenth problems, three metaphysical these on mathematical philosophy, and Wittgenstein on mathematical proof.
