Geometry,Physics, and Phenomenology: Four Letters of O. Becker to H. Weyl (with T. Ryckman)
This chapter continues the treatment of the relation between phenomenology and mathematics during the twenties began in Chapter 10. The investigation focuses on Hermann Weyl and Oskar Becker and their thoughts on the relation between phenomenology and the foundations of geometry and physics. After a description of the four letters from Becker to Weyl treating such matters, the chapter investigates in detail the related mathematical and phenomenological context of Weyl’s work on geometry and relativity theory that inspired Becker’s work on the phenomenological foundation of physics and geometry.
