Introduction to The Philosophy of Physics: Volume 2 of the North-Holland series, the Handbook of the Philosophy of Science.
This is the editors' introduction to a new anthology of commissioned articles covering the various branches of philosophy of physics. We introduce the articles in terms of the three pillars of modern physics: relativity theory, quantum theory and thermal physics. We end by discussing the present state, and future prospects, of fundamental physics.
