Hugo Dingler (1881-1954) was a German philosopher and physicist who made significant contributions to the fields of philosophy of science, epistemology, and ontology. Born in Munich, he studied mathematics, physics, and philosophy at the University of Munich, where he received his doctorate in 1905. Dingler's philosophical work was heavily influenced by his background in physics, and he believed that the study of science was the key to understanding the world. He was critical of traditional philosophical methods and argued that philosophy should be grounded in empirical observation and experimentation.
Originally published in 1944 as Lehrbuch der Exakten Naturwissenschaften, this text was meant by Dingler to serve as an introductory textbook to the methodical justification of mathematics and physics. The new title appeared with the 1964 edition, edited by Paul Lorenzen and issued after the author’s death.
