This is the only systematic treatment of the role of language in the interpretation of physics
The interpretation of quantum mechanics accommodates current advances in quantum field theory
This book breaches the separation between analysis and philosophy of science
This book is the final outcome of many years of work on the philosophy of physics
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 ti the classical/quatum interface. Bohrian orthodoxy stresses the indispensability of classical concepts and the functional role of mathematics. We analyze ways of extending and then going beyond this orthodoxy orthodoxy. Finally, the book analyzes how a revised interpretation of physics impacts on basic philosophical issues: conceptual revolutions, realism, and reductionism.
