This introductory textbook to the philosophy of physics is intended for students in both fields. Rickles (history and philosophy of science, University of Sydney, Australia) explains the purpose of the discipline. It is used to interpret theories of physics, including some of the most controversial, such as string theory and quantum gravity. It also speculates of ramifications of these theories for our conception of "life, the universe and everything". Philosophers are usually trained physicists as well. In order to appreciate this study properly, a solid mathematical background is essential. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
