Quantum Field Theory as a Faithful Image of Nature

Small book cover: Quantum Field Theory as a Faithful Image of Nature

Quantum Field Theory as a Faithful Image of Nature
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 130

Description:
This book can be used as a textbook on quantum field theory for students of physics or as a monograph for philosophers and physicists interested in the epistemological foundations of particle physics. The benefits of an approach resting on philosophical foundations is twofold: the reader is stimulated to critical thinking and the entire story flows very naturally, thus removing all the mysteries from quantum field theory.
