Suppes' work can be considered a remarkable step forward in the domain of science and mathematics. It deals with all the important fields of the philosophy of science, among which probability, relativity, quantum mechanics, visual space, as well as space and time in general. One of the most remarkable is the chapter on probability, that examines the controversies on the representation of probability. 

Includes a preface. A Summary Table of Representation and Invariance Theorems by chapter is in Appendix.

Table of Contents:

  • Introduction
  • Axiomatic Definition of Theories
  • Theory of Isomorphic Representation
  • Invariance
  • Representations of Probability
  • Representations of Space and Time
  • Representations in Mechanics
  • Representations of Language
  • Summary Table of Representation and Invariance Theorems by Chapter.
