Book description
La Science et l'Hypothèse est un ouvrage destiné au grand public et par lequel le mathématicien Henri Poincaré fait le point sur ce qu'il faut attendre ou non des sciences concernant les quatre sujets suivants :

* les mathématiques

* les caractéristiques de l'espace (y compris en géométrie non-euclidienne)

* les connaissances physiques (mécanique classique, relativité des mouvements, énergie, thermodynamique)

* la nature (hypothèses en physique, rôle des probabilités, optique, électricité et électrodynamique, fin de l'idée classique de matière)

et des relations qui existent entre les unes et les autres.
