Editorial Reviews

Review

Features contributions from leading experts... This volume has... a diverse set of rich and stimulating papers, representative of the best cutting-edge research in this exciting interdisciplinary program.  --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

This is a courageous book... it is also a very interesting one... as far as 20th century philosophers... have set its agenda... [this] book obviously attempts to bridge this gap. And successfully so, I would say. --N. P. Landsman

The book has thus become a goldmine of information and original ideas about quantum mechanics and its philosophy. --Dennis Dieks

"In the end, then, this volume has much to recommend it. Those who agree with its dominant philosophical perspectives will find a diverse set of rich and stimulating papers, representative of the best cutting-edge research in this exciting interdisciplinary program. Those who disagree will still learn about the kinds of research the information theoretic perspective is stimulating and will in addition be encouraged to confront an eminently worthwhile question: how can one understand all of this important progress from a more realist point of view?"
Travis Norsen, Marlboro College for Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Book Description

Bringing together fourteen world-leading physicists and philosophers of physics, this interdisciplinary volume addresses the most important developments and debates in this exciting area of research. Offering a broad spectrum of approaches to resolving deep foundational challenges, this book is ideal for historians, philosophers of science and physicists.
