This book comprises all of John Bell's published and unpublished papers in the field of quantum mechanics, including two papers that appeared after the first edition was published. It also contains a preface written for the first edition, and an introduction by Alain Aspect that puts into context Bell's great contribution to the quantum philosophy debate. One of the leading expositors and interpreters of modern quantum theory, John Bell played a major role in the development of our current understanding of the profound nature of quantum concepts. First edition Hb (1987): 0-521-33495-0 First edition Pb (1988): 0-521-36869-3Read more
- First edition sold nearly 15,000 copies, and received exceptional reviews
- Includes two papers published after the first edition was published and before Bell died, together with a long introduction by Alain Aspect
- An excellent collection of John Bell's enormous contributions to the quantum philosophy debate
Reviews & endorsements
"One of the leading expositors and interpreters of modern quantum theory, John Bell is particularly famous for his discovery of the crucial difference between the predictions of conventional quantum mechanics and the implications of local causality. This book includes all of John Bell's published and unpublished papers on the conceptual and philosophical problems of quantum mechanics." Astronomical Society of the PacificSee more reviews
