?The Short History of Science ? or the long path to the union of metaphysics and empiricism? offers a guided tour of the path of development of natural sciences from antique philosophical concepts to the precise empirical theories in modern physics and cosmology, and their relation to a scientific picture of physical reality. Arising out of the author?s deep-probing work on the Dynamic Universe theory, the book discusses the possibility of uniting present theories by restructuring the empirically driven solutions at a deeper metaphysical level.

In addition to a study of the development path itself, the book presents a biographical gallery of more than a hundred scientists who contributed majorly to scientific development as well as a long list of references with links to original texts by the pioneers. The book is not only a source of information ? but also challenges the reader to consider for himself this scientific evolution, the basis of prevailing theories and the picture of reality.

?The Short History of Science ? or the long path to the union of metaphysics and empiricism? provides a tool and a source of inspiration for both teachers and students of natural sciences as well as for individuals willing to deepen their understanding of the universe we live in.

Back cover comments:

Dr. Suntola?s ?The Short History of Science? shows fascinating competence in its constructively critical in-depth exploration of the long path that the pioneers of metaphysics and empirical science have followed in building up our present understanding of physical reality. The book is made unique by the author?s perspective. He reflects the historical path to his Dynamic Universe theory that opens an unparalleled perspective to a deeper understanding of the harmony in nature ? to click the pieces of the puzzle into their places. The book opens a unique possibility for the reader to make his own evaluation of the postulates behind our present understanding of reality.

The book gives an exceptionally interesting perspective on the history of science and the development paths that have led to our scientific picture of physical reality. As a philosophical question, the reader may conclude how much the development has been directed by coincidences, and whether the picture of reality would have been different if another path had been chosen.

- Heikki Sipil?, PhD, nuclear physics

Would other routes have been chosen, if all modern experiments had been available to the early scientists? This is an excellent book for a guided scientific tour challenging the reader to an in-depth consideration of the choices made.

The Dynamic Universe theory is a holistic description of the observable physical reality. It is a unifying theory converting spacetime in variable coordinates into dynamic space in absolute coordinates. The Dynamic Universe theory relies on an overall zero-energy balance in space and the conservation of the total energy in interactions in space. Predictions for local phenomena in DU space are essentially the same as the corresponding predictions given by the special and general theories of relativity. At extremes - at cosmological distances and in the vicinity of local singularities in space - differences in the predictions become meaningful. Reasons for the differences are traced back to the differences in the basic assumptions and in the structures of the two approaches.

"The Dynamic Universe, Toward a unified picture of physical reality"  gives a detailed introduction of the Dynamic Universe theory from its philosophical basis to predictions and comparisons to prevailing theories and observations.

Comments by Physics Foundations Society Members:

"Dr. Suntola develops the ideas of Einstein and Feynman into a complete theory: "The Dynamic Universe". The model is based on the most powerful laws of nature: conservation of total energy and momentum. The interpretation of the derived equations is unambiguous and the calculations agree with observations to high degree of accuracy without any fitting parameters like the dark energy. The model is rational and can be understood by anyone with basic knowledge in physics and mathematics."

"An imposing achievement paving the way for enhanced understanding of reality"
    - Tarja Kallio-Tamminen, PhD, theoretical philosophy, MSc, high energy physics

"Dr. Suntola's Dynamic Universe describes physical nature from a minimum amount of postulates. In the Dynamic Universe, conservation of total energy links local interactions to the rest of space - providing a solid theoretical basis to Mach's principle and a natural explanation for the relativity of observations. Not least, the model accurately explains observed physical and cosmological phenomena."
