An Interpretive Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

Written on July 9, 2011. Written by .

This is a book on an advanced subject of physics written by a philosopher. It is surprisingly advanced in terms of physics content, I don’t know how a philosopher learned this much QFT, but I still don’t like it. It is funny how he spends a whole chapter talking about “primitive thisness”, which is basically distinguishability without the need for an experimental method to do so. There were a couple of gems, like his explanation of the Dirac equation on page 68. However, most of the book was a waste of time. I would say its best use would be food for thought after you have already learned the subject properly.
