About this Item: Cambridge, etc.: University Press, 1999., 1999. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition. xv, 235 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'This collection of essays by leading philosophers of physics offers philosophical perspectives on two central elements of modern physics, quantum theory and relativity. The topics examined include the notorious 'measurement problem' of quantum theory and the attempts to solve it by attributing extra values to physical quantities, the mysterious non-locality of quantum theory, and the philosophical aspects of the search for a theory of quantum gravity. Together the essays represent some of the most recent research in philosophy of physics, and break new ground within the philosophy of quantum theory' (Cambridge University Press Web site). Contents: Introduction Jeremy Butterfield and Constantine Pagonis; 1. Locality and the Hardy Theorem Arthur Fine; 2. Beables in algebraic quantum theory Rob Clifton; 3. Aspects of objectivity in quantum mechanics Harvey Brown; 4. The beables of relativistic pilot-wave theory Simon Saunders; 5. Bohemian mechanics and chaos James Cushing and Gary Bowman; 6. Strange positions Gordon Fleming and Jeremy Butterfield; 7. From metaphysics to physics Gordon Belot and John Earman; 8. Models and mathematics in physics: the role of group theory Steven French; 9. Can the fundamental laws of nature be the results of evolution? Abner Shimony. 'This admirable volume . . . is a good place to find out what contemporary philosophers of physics regard as important problems. It is good, not just because of the breadth of topics discussed, and the fact that, without exception, the articles are well written and stimulating, but because some contain important results I have not seen elsewhere' (Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics).
