Are the particles of modern physics "real" or are they virtual entities, their existence deduced merely by abstract theories? This book examines the continuing debate regarding the inner constitution of matter by exploring the particle concept in physics. It investigates if the particles of particle physics are real or not. Readers interested in the "true meaning" of such physical concepts will find this book informative and thought provoking.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This work could, and should, change the direction of current philosophy of science. Accomplished physicist-philosopher Falkenburg ... has constructed a significant metaphysical framework in which to evaluate the knowledge claims of empirical particle physics. ... Urgently recommended to all philosophers of science and interested physicists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." (P. D. Skiff, CHOICE, Vol. v4 (3), November, 2007)
