Oxford University Pressの定番シリーズVery Short Introductionsのベストセラー「物理学の哲学」（Philosophy of Physics）の電子書籍Kinoppy版のご案内です。
Philosophy of physics is concerned with the deepest theories of modern physics – notably quantum theory, our theories of space, time and symmetry, and thermal physics – and their strange, even bizarre conceptual implications. A deeper understanding of these theories helps both physics, through pointing the way to new theories and new applications, and philosophy, through seeing how our worldview has to change in the light of what we learn from physics.
