Overview

The third edition of Quantum Non-Locality and Relativity has been carefully updated to reflect significant developments, including a new chapter covering important recent work in the foundations of physics.

  • A new edition of the premier philosophical study of Bell’s Theorem and its implication for the relativistic account of space and time

  • Discusses Roderich Tumiulka’s explicit, relativistic theory that can reproduce the quantum mechanical violation of Bell’s inequality. 

  • Discusses the "Free Will Theorem" of John Conway and Simon Kochen

  • Introduces philosophers to the relevant physics and demonstrates how philosophical analysis can help inform physics
