Item Description

Type Archives and Manuscripts
Description In his Reviews of Modern Physics article on Hugh Everett's theory, John Wheeler referenced the philosophical writings of Philip Frank, a philosopher of science at Harvard University. In May 1957, Everett sent Frank the Reviews of Modern Physics preprints, along with a letter in which he identified himself with Frank's broadly empiricist world view. Frank replied with some brief, but apparently approving, remarks.
