Philosophical foundations of quantum field theory( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2001 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this volume of essays is to delineate and examine a range of topics which represent a systematic account of the nature and implications of QFT.; The contributors, who include Michael Redhead, James T. Cushing, Paul Teller, and Gordon Fleming, approach QFT from a variety of standpoints. Part I offers two different interpretations of the value of studying the foundations of QFT as an area of separate metaphysical research. Parts II and III consider the metaphysical and methodological implications of such issues as the problem of the status of virtual particles; the technique of renormalization; and the; role of covariance principles. Part IV examines the mathematical foundations of QFT
Physical relativity : space-time structure from a dynamical perspective by Harvey R Brown( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the Einstein's reservations about the way he formulated his theory of relativity, this text looks at the grounds of these doubts on the part of a handful of physicists and philosophers in the course of the 20th century
The Philosophy of vacuum( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

* Contains a hitherto untranslated paper by Einstein. The vacuum is fast emerging as the central structure of modern physics. How is this possible? What is the vacuum concept, and why is it so important? This collection brings together philosophically-minded specialists who engage these issues in the context of classical gravity, quantum electrodynamics, and the grand unification programme. The vacuum emerges as the synthesis of concepts of space, time, and matter; in the context of relativity and the quantum this new synthesis represents a structure of the most intricate and novel complexity. The Philosophy of Vacuum is unashamedly a project in metaphysics. The science of our time has transformed the concepts of space and time and of force and matter, yet the philosophy of Bohr and his school has found small purchase on the contemporary concerns of physics, and there are few guidelines to be found within the empiricist tradition of contemporary philosophy. However slippery the conundrums of metaphysical realism, the message of contemporary science remains the same: concepts and heuristics are grounded in consideration of what exists in the world.; Here, then, is a work in modern metaphysics, in which the concepts of substance and space interweave in the most intangible of forms, the background and context of our physical experience: vacuum, void or nothingness
