Incompleteness, Nonlocality, and Realism: A Prolegomenon to the Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics

Oxford University Press (1987)

Michael Redhead
London School of Economics
Aiming to unravel the mystery of quantum mechanics, this book is concerned with questions about action-at-a-distance, holism, and whether quantum mechanics gives a complete account of microphysical reality. With rigorous arguments and clear thinking, the author provides an introduction to the philosophy of physics.
