Christopher Caudwell's The Crisis in Physics is a stylish and readable analysis of the lines of connection between scientific theories and economic realities. Caudwell provides a trenchant critique of mechanism and positivism. In the words of J. B. S. Haldane, The Crisis in Physics offers a 'quarry of ideas' for future philosophers: a wealth of insights and arguments that demand and deserve continuing critical reflection.
