This important work provides an account of the philosophical foundations of quantum theory that should become a classic text for scientists and nonscientists alike. R. I. G.

He goes on to show how the very suitability of Hilbert spaces for modeling the quantum world gives rise to deep problems of interpretation, and makes suggestions about how they can be overcome.
