- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 69.95
The empirical successes of atomic, nuclear, and particle physics have not diminished, and may never fully resolve, the philosophical controversies about the inner constitution of matter. This book examines these debates by exploring the particle concept in physics. It is suitable for scholars, students and teachers of science and philosophy. more...

Gauge fields are the messengers carrying signals between elementary particles, enabling them to interact with each other. Originating at the level of quarks, these basic interactions percolate upwards, through nuclear and atomic physics, through chemical and solid state physics, to make our everyday world go round. This book tells the story of gauge... more...
