Smart wrote in Mind (England): "In my opinion Adolf Grünbaum's paper ... supersedes nearly all that has been written on the logical status of physical geometry and chronometry." The full text of the essay is given here with the author's extension of it and his discussion of some of the critical comment it has evoked, particularly, a critique published by Hilary Putnam.– rear panel blurb clean and free of annotation, the only damage is a loss of colour from fading on the spine section of the binding, and rubbing of the edges of the spine.
