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 demands continuing critical reflection.


“Caudwell’s style is fluent, cogent and assertive.”

“He wrote prolifically, in the most astonishing outpouring of creative energy, and produced serious Marxist theoretical works that can only be described as original and breathtakingly brilliant.”

“Caudwell criticized, brilliantly and destructively, the philosophical conclusions of bourgeois scientists.”
