Hobson has four unifying themes: How do we know?, the significance of post-Newtonian physics (modern physics), energy, and the social context of physics. These themes become evident in the writing and pedagogy throughout the fourth edition.

New To This Edition

  • Updated, extensively revised chapters on relativity: moreadding:0px;padding-left:10px;margin:0px;'>
    • Cleanly separates special and general relativity chapters (Chapters 10 and 11), so instructors can present and omit material as they choose.
    • All cosmological material is now gathered into Chapter 11, making this topic easier for instructors to teach.
  • More modern, straightforward treatment of quantum physics Simplifies presentation for instructors and makes material more interesting; avoids the confusion associated with wave-particle duality.
  • New and updated societal topics, such as nuclear terrorism Lends relevance and urgency to the material, demonstrating the importance of physics in students' lives and in society.
  • Added and improved ''How Do We Know'' subsections Emphasizes the processes of science.
  • Conventional terms and symbols used to replace several unconventional terms and symbols from the previous edition. For example:
    • In the modern physics chapters, "v" rather than "s" is now used for speed.
    • "Matter field" is now used instead of "psi field."
    • Quantum "uncertainty" is now used instead of quantum "indeterminacy." less
