This is an automatically generated and experimental page

If everything goes well, this page should display the bibliography of the aforementioned article as it appears in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, but with links added to PhilPapers records and Google Scholar for your convenience. Some bibliographies are not going to be represented correctly or fully up to date.

A comprehensive treatment of the issues from a philosophical perspective is Sklar 1993. Of important historical interest is Reichenbach 1956. An accessible and up-to-date discussion of the fundamental issues is Albert 2000. The possoible invocation of a time asymmetric law through the GRW approach is discussed in this book. A spirited defense of the initial low entropy approach to time asymmetry is Price 1996. English translations of many original fundamental papers are in Brush 1965. Brush 1976 provides an historical treatment of the development of the theory. Two foundational works that are essential are Gibbs 1960 and Ehrenfest and Ehrenfest 1959.
