Zusammenfassung

Ernst Mach’s book Die Mechanik in Ihrer Entwicklung Historisch-Kritisch Dargestellt, one of the great scientific achievements of the last century, remains a model for the presentation of the development of ideas in any field. In its own domain, the work is still full of vitality. It is an inspiration to philosophers of science, a valuable source of information for historians of physics, and a splendid help to teachers of mechanics. Its first half is a most stimulating introduction of unsurpassed clarity and depth for beginners.
