The relation between classical and quantum electrodynamics

Theoria 26 (70):51-68 (2011)
In this article it is presented the idea that quantum electrodynamics has to be seen as a theoretical upgrade of classical electrodynamics and the theory of relativity, that permits an extension of classical theory in the description of phenomena, that while being clearly related to the conceptual framework of the classical theory – the description of matter, radiation, and their interaction – cannot be properly addressed from the classical theory. In this way quantum electrodynamics would not be a fundamental theory, and principally, we could not consider classical electrodynamics as contained in the quantum theory and being recovered from it by some sort of limiting procedure.
