Philosophy of Physics
This volume of Philosophy of Physics confronts quantum theory. The original intent was to cover both quantum theory and statis-tical explanation, but that was not feasible, given the constraints of space. Quantum theory presents a fiendish challenge for a book like this: There are too many phenomena, too much tech-nical elaboration, and too many fundamental conceptual issues to be adequately exposited in such a limited span. Unlike space- time theory, where there is substantial agreement about how to understand the best physics we have (General Relativity), quan-tum theory has always been a battleground of contention. Noth-ing one can say would command the assent of most physicists or philosophers.
