    Let’s move onto the second book, which is a classic of philosophy, and often the book which is recommended to people beginning philosophy, Descartes’ Meditations. This is one of the great works of philosophy, Descartes’ Meditations on First Philosophy, published in It’s a short book and it’s a book that many people know because of the famous doctrine of the cogito, ‘I think.

For a general view in physics you could check out the Feynmann lectures on physics. In my personal opinion, Feynmann is the most important physicist of the second half of 20th century, and he was also an extraordinary profesor, so these books are.

"In Thinking About Physics, a fast-paced and challenging collection of essays, Newton appears as an opinionated yet approachable discussion leader Newton cuts a wide swath and sprinkles his analysis with provocations that make it hard to be a passive reader."Cited by: 6.

He argues that physicists should spend more time thinking about physics. If they did, he believes, they would become even Physical scientists are problem solvers.

They are comfortable doing science: they find problems, solve them, and explain their solutions/5(6). “Surely physics is more than a collection of experimental results, assembled to satisfy the curiosity of appreciative experts,” Newton writes.

Physics, according to Newton, has moved beyond the describing and naming of curious phenomena, which is the goal of some other branches of science.

Physicists have spent a great part of the twentieth century searching for explanations of experimental : Read this book if you care about students really understanding physics and getting genuine intellectual satisfaction from doing so.

Thinking about Physics book it too if you fear that this goal is out of reach – you may be surprised. Laurence Viennot here shows ways to deal with the awkward fact that common sense thinking is often not the same as scientific thinking.

How the Hippies Saved Physics by David Kaiser is, as the title promises, a highly readable look at the role counterculture and "New Age" thinking played in sparking the renewed interest in.

There’s a real strong element of philosophy in Einstein’s thinking, which is, to a certain extent, inevitable when you’re at that level—at the frontier of physics, talking about your understanding of space and time and matter and radiation. This book was developed at Simon Fraser University for an upper-level physics course.

Along with a careful exposition of electricity and magnetism, it devotes a chapter to ferromagnets. According to the course description, the topics covered were “electromagnetics, magnetostatics, waves, transmission lines, wave guides,antennas, and radiating.

The book makes a convincing argument that there are unresolved issues in the interpretation of quantum physics, and an impassioned plea for more philosophical thinking.

The research in Physics Education has to do with the search of solutions to the complex problem of how to improve the learning and teaching of physics. The complexity of the problem lies in the different fields of knowledge that need to be considered in the research.

He argues that physicists should spend more time thinking about physics. If they did, he believes, they would become even more skilled at solving problems and "doing" science. As Newton points out in this thought-provoking book, problem solving is always influenced by the theoretical assumptions of the problem : Popular Books on Physics (The Good Ones) When you're solving problems, working through textbooks, getting into the nitty-gritty details of each topic, it's so easy to lose the forest for the trees and forget why you even became inspired to study physics in the first place.

This is where really, really good (and non-speculative) books on physics.Not a single book could suffice for the preparation of IIT-JEE. But according to me, the most exhaustive set of books, which would focus greatly not only on concepts building but also on the problem-solving techniques (which is indeed the key to c.
