Gauging What's Real: The Conceptual Foundations of Contemporary Gauge Theories

Oxford University Press (2007)
Abstract
This is a prize-winning study of an area of physics not previously explored by philosophy: gauge theory. Gauge theories have provided our most successful representations of the fundamental forces of nature. But how do such representations work? Healey defends an original answer to this question
