Excerpt

This book owes so much to so many; yet space permits the mention of so few. But the friendly guidance of H. H. Price, G. Ryle, P. F. Strawson, S. E. Toulmin, A. J. T. D. Wisdom and W. C. Kneale amongst philosophers, and Sir H. Jeffreys, P. A. M. Dirac and N. F. Mott amongst physicists, must be gratefully acknowledged. So must my indebtedness to R. A. Becher of the Cambridge University Press, and to the Master and Fellows of St John's College, Cambridge. Without their encouragement, this work would have expired long since, which, I concede, might have been a more deserving fate for I To my wife, Fay, the most endearing of critics, I give my grateful thanks -- for everything.
