Written within the culture of G. Ludwig’s groundbreaking works, this booklet goals to explain and formulate extra exactly the basic rules of actual theories. by means of introducing a easy descriptive language of easy shape, during which it truly is attainable to formulate recorded proof, ambiguities of actual theories are shunned up to attainable. during this method the sector of physics that are meant to be defined through a conception will depend on simple thoughts basically, i.e. techniques that may be defined and not using a theory.

In this context the authors introduce a brand new notion of idealization and assessment the method of researching new techniques. they suspect that, while the theories are formulated inside an axiomatic foundation, options are available to many tricky difficulties resembling the translation of actual theories, the kinfolk among theories in addition to the creation of actual concepts.

The e-book addresses either physicists and philosophers of technological know-how and will motivate the reader to give a contribution to the certainty of the lasting middle of actual wisdom in regards to the actual constructions of the world.

E) is a consequence of the equivalent relations mentioned under C 24 of [6, Chap. I, Sect. ” Because of their interest, particularly for the very significant reflection from the point of view of physics (see Chap. 3 and especially Chap. 4) are added: (f) Let A be a relation in M T , and let M T be the theory obtained by adjoining A to the axioms of M T . If B is a theorem in M T , then “A ⇒ B” is a theorem in M T . (Proof: see C 14 of [6, Chap. I, Sect. 3]). (g) Let A(x) and B be relations in M T (x is not a constant of M T ), let T be a term such that A(T ) is a theorem in M T , and let M T be the theory obtained by adjoining A(x) to the axioms of M T (x is thus a constant of M T ).
