"This is a massive scholarly book on the work of David Hilbert on physics. In more than 400 pages the author provides us with an in-depth analysis of the fundamental contributions of this mathematician-born scientist to many branches of physics … . the historical reconstruction, which was the main aim of the author is … done with extreme competence and care, and it is, I think, of the highest quality." (Daniele Oriti, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 i)
"The main message of the book is that physics played in Hilbert’s research … a much larger role than is commonly recognized. … It is written in a lively but at the same time in a very careful academic style. … Throughout the book the reader is confronted with many interesting … facts. … Leo Corry’s book is a significant contribution to Hilbert studies and will be a major reference source … . I enjoyed reading the book and can recommend it to everyone." (Lev Beklemishev, Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics, Vol. 37, 2006)
