This volume defends a novel approach to the philosophy of physics: it is the first book devoted to a comparative study of
probability, causality, and propensity, and their various interrelations, within the context of contemporary physics -- particularly
quantum and statistical physics. The philosophical debates and distinctions are firmly grounded upon examples from actual
physics, thus exemplifying a robustly empiricist approach. The essays, by both prominent scholars in the field and promising
young researchers, constitute a pioneer effort in bringing out the connections between probabilistic, causal and dispositional
aspects of the quantum domain.
The book will appeal to specialists in philosophy and foundations of physics, philosophy
of science in general, metaphysics, ontology of physics theories, and philosophy of probability.
