Philosophy in PhysicsThe Philosophy of Physics is a very challenging field because not only do you have to be good at Philosophy, you have to be good at Physics and Mathematics too!
To tell you the truth, I try hard, but even this superhero has trouble here. I feel this is a subject for the gods. Us mere mortals will just have to struggle - but there is joy in the struggle too. I hope that my pages here will help shed some light on the subjects at hand.
I have tried to do two main things here:
- I have tried to address subjects as clearly as I can with the least possible verbiage. I wan to keep things succinct. There are plenty of texts to get your feet wet in. I don't need to replicate these efforts.
- I will add meaning from the perspective of this Superhero. In many ways, what is written here is how this philosophy is meaningful to me.
- I am no Academic
- The texts are not comprehensive you will be required to read around and outside the text to make sense of it
- I will not try and put caveats between each line and hedge each word. You will have to interpret these texts charitably.
