Against Field Interpretations of Quantum Field Theory.
I examine some problems standing in the way of a successful ``field interpretation'' of quantum field theory. The most popular extant proposal depends on the Hilbert space of ``wavefunctionals.'' But since wavefunctional space is unitarily equivalent to many-particle Fock space, two of the most powerful arguments against particle interpretations also undermine this form of field interpretation.
