About the Author

Tim Maudlin is Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University. He received his doctorate in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Pittsburgh. His work lies at the intersection of physics and philosophy, including the foundations of physics and logic. He is the author of Truth and Paradox (2004) and The Metaphysics within Physics (2007). Maudlin is a member of the Academie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences and a Guggenheim Fellow.


"An absolutely indispensible read for anyone who wants to understand the problem of "making sense" of quantum mechanics. It is beautifully written and profoundly exciting." ?Hilary Putnam, Harvard University "The publication of the third edition of Tim Maudlin's classic book undoubtedly represents a most notable event. The richness and depth of the previous editions has been enhanced by the presentation of very recent and important investigation and debate concerning the most crucial problem of modern physics, i.e. the compatibility of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. Reading this challenging and extremely deep book is a must for all people interested in the conceptual foundations of science." ?GianCarlo Ghirardi, Professor Emeritus, University of Trieste Praise for the second edition "Maudlin's book is outstanding, and is particularly remarkable for three central achievements: the clearest exposition of Bell's theorem I know of; a careful discussion of the (in)compatibility between the implications of that theorem and relativity; and astute suggestions for how one could deal with this problem. Maudlin is a professional philosopher who writes on this most fundamental issue of physics in a way that is far clearer than the work of most physicists." ?Jean Bricmont, University of Louvain
