Description:
This is a book about the role of language in physics, and especially about its role
in the interpretation of quantum mechanics. Yet, it is utterly unlike any other book
written on the interpretation of quantum mechanics. This introduction gives a preliminary account of the reasons for the novel approach.
This book is the first to offer a systematic account of the role of language in the development and interpretation of physics. An historical-conceptual analysis of the co-evolution of mathematical and physical concepts leads to the classical/quatum interface. Bohrian orthodoxy stresses the indispensability of classical concepts and the functional role of mathematics. This book analyses ways of extending, and then going beyond this orthodoxy . Finally, the book analyzes how a revised interpretation of physics impacts on basic philosophical issues: conceptual revolutions, realism, and reductionism.
