Beyond Measure: Modern Physics, Philosophy and the Meaning of Quantum Theory

Jim Baggott

  • Baggott is a well known and highly respected free-lance science writer
  • Quantum theory is undoubtedly one of the most important theories of modern physical science

New to this Edition:

  • This second edition is much less a revision of the first (published in 1992) and more a complete re-write. The basic structure remains, but in five parts (and 14 chapters) instead of five chapters, as in the first edition. Aside from the content itself, the most significant change has been the removal of the mathematics to a long series of appendices which improves the flow and readability of the main text whilst still providing interested readers with the opportunity to delve into the mathematics should they wish to do s In summary - 70% of the text and 50% of the figures
