Jammer M. The philosophy of quantum mechanics: The interpretations of quantum mechanics in historical perspective
John Wiley & Sons, 1974. - 536 pp.
Everyone who has studied quantum physics and is interested in its "philosophical foundations" has no doubt picked up this book, if not to study it in detail, certainly to at least briefly peruse its contents. It is the most widely cited of all books on the philosophy of quantum physics, and apart from discussing the issues most effectively, it also could be used as an introduction to graduate-level quantum physics and the mathematical structure of quantum mechanics.
The book by Max jammer gives a detailed historical overview of the controversy surrounding quantum physics, from a philosophical perspective. It indeed sheds considerable light on the historical context in which quantum mechanics arose, and how its formalism evolved throughout the 20th century. The EPR controversy, the Bohr-Einstein debate, and the rise of many-worlds theories are all fascinating topics, and one can find ample discussion of these by the author. The author is also careful to include a substantial bibliography for serious scholars of quantum physics.

Routledge, 2008. - 264 Pages. This book offers an intriguing sample of both traditional and current ideas in the philosophy of mathematics. Its readable style is aimed at those with more background in philosophy than in mathematics, with detailed examples usually involving only secondary-level algebra and geometry. The author (philosophy, Univ. of Toronto) states that one of his goals is to argue for Platonism. This attempt is not entirely conv...

North Holland, 2009. - 733 pages. One of the most striking features of mathematics is the fact that we are much more certain about the mathematical knowledge we have than about what mathematical knowledge is knowledge of. Are numbers, sets, functions and groups physical entities of some kind? Are they objectively existing objects in some non-physical, mathematical realm? Are they ideas that are present only in the mind? Or do mathematical truths...

Oxford University Press, 2005. - 856 Pages. Mathematics and logic have been central topics of concern since the dawn of philosophy. Since logic is the study of correct reasoning, it is a fundamental branch of epistemology and a priority in any philosophical system. Philosophers have focused on mathematics as a case study for general philosophical issues and for its role in overall knowledge- gathering. Today, philosophy of mathematics and logic...

Springer, 2006. - 360 pp. Carl Friedrich von Weizs?cker's "Aufbau der Physik", first published in 1985, was intended as an overview of his lifelong concern: an understanding of the unity of physics. That is, the idea of a quantum theory of binary alternatives (the so-called ur-theory), a unified quantum theoretical framework in which spinorial symmetry groups are considered to give rise to the structure of space and time. The book saw numerous re...
