On 4 December, a workshop will be held to launch Klaas Landsman’s new Open Access book, Foundations of Quantum Theory, with talks by Landsman, Butterfield, Feintzeig and Roberts.

The remarkable book Foundations of Quantum Theory, by Klaas Landsman, lies in the intersection of mathematical physics and philosophy of physics. It has been published using Springer’s Open Access scheme and is freely available to all. To launch its publication, this workshop will bring together philosophers and physicists to discuss some of the major themes of the book.
