Reviews

"The book is filled with references to family members and includes over thirty pages of historical family photographs. Two Worlds is a highly readable account of the life and times of a distinguished scholar, a remarkable man whose intellectual curiosity and determination could not be dampened by the overwhelming repressiveness of the fascist Peronist regime. Kudos to Mario Bunge for memoirs well-written and for a life, both personal and academic, still being well-lived at ninety-seven." (James E. Alcock, Skeptical Inquirer, January-February, 2017)"This 500-page Memoirs is a delightful and informative read, not just about the life of Bunge, but about much of twentieth century philosophy of science. ... This is a lovely account of what constitutes a good school science teacher; and it is doubtful if, after the subsequent millions of educational publications, anything better and clearer has been written. If transposed to the university level, and elaborated, it well-fits Mario Bunge the physicist-philosopher as revealed in these Memoirs." (Michael R. Matthews, Science and Education, Vol. 25, 2016)
