Beyond Measure: Modern Physics, Philosophy, and the Meaning of Quantum Theory - Jim BaggottQuantum theory is one of the most important and successful theories of modern physical science. It has been estimated that its principles form the basis for about 30 per cent of the world's manufacturing economy. This is all the more remarkable because quantum theory is a theory that nobody understands. This text introduces senior undergraduate and postgraduate students to the theory's fundamental conceptual and philosophical problems. Most students are taught about quantum theory as though these problems do not exist or are irrelevant to their understanding. Either by design or default they are
