This collection of essays by leading philosophers of physics offers philosophical perspectives on two of the 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, the curious properties of spatial localization in relativistic quantum theories, and the problem of time in 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.
'... the book provides a truly valuable collection of essays ... it is an ideal work for anyone who wishes to get a view of the variety and status of topics currently debated in the philosophy of physics, and I fully recommend it.' The Philosophical Quarterly
