Product Description


Review of the hardback: 'The authors represent an impressive array of prominent names in the philosophy of physics at the start of the 21st century. This work deserves to be in the libraries of all institutions of higher learning that offer graduate level courses in physics or philosophy, and on the shelves of all researchers on the philosophy of physics. Careful and thoughtful editing has resulted in an attractive format, free of the typographical errors and other infelicities that currently so often mar books of this type. Good bibliographies and a detailed and competent index further extend its usefulness.' MetaScience

Review of the hardback: '… will be useful not only as a reference work for researchers, but also as a valuable resource for a graduate course in the foundations and philosophy of modern physics.' Contemporary Physics
