Title: Some trends in the philosophy of physics
Authors: Zinkernagel, Henrik
Issue Date: 2011
Abstract: A short review of some recent developments in the philosophy of physics is presented. I focus on themes which illustrate relations and points of common interest between philosophy of physics and three of its `neighboring' elds: Physics, metaphysics and general philosophy of science. The main examples discussed in these three `border areas' are (i) decoherence and the interpretation of quantum mechanics; (ii) time in physics and metaphysics; and (iii)methodological issues surrounding the multiverse idea in modern cosmology.
Sponsorship: I thank the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (Project FFI2008-06418-C03-02) for financial support.
