Interpreting Physics: Language and the Classical/Quantim Divide

Springer (2011)
This book is the first to offer a systematic account of the role of language in the development and interpretation of physics. An historical-conceptual analysis of the co-evolution of physics and mathematics leads to the classical/quantum interface. Bohr's interpretation is analyzed and extended to the interpretation of the standard model of particle physics.
Keywords Interpreting quantum mechanics  The role of language in physics  Reductionism and emergence
