Product Description

From the Back Cover

This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the philosophy of physics, and is an indispensable reference work for all researchers in the field. The organization of the volume, as well as the choice of topics, is motivated by the conviction that the interesting and important problems in the philosophy of physics concern the foundations of our fundamental physical theories. Thus, the three main pillars of modern physics---thermal physics, relativity theory and quantum theory---are all treated in detail. This conviction also implies that there is no sharp line between philosophy of physics and physics itself; and accordingly, several of the contributors to this volume are theoretical physicists.

List of contributors: Gordon Belot; Katherine Brading; Jeremy Butterfield; Jeffrey Bub; Elena Castellani; Michael Dickson; John Earman; George Ellis; Gerard Emch; Hans Halvorson; Klaas Landsman; David Malament; Michael MƒØger; Carlo Rovelli; Gerard ¡¦t Hooft; Jos Uffink.
