This book deals with a selection of research topics in theoretical physics that have (almost) been proven to be a dead-end or continue at least to be highly controversial. Nevertheless, small but dedicated research communities continue to work on these issues. In a series of essays this book describes their work and struggle as well as the chances of any breakthrough in these areas. It is written as both an entertainment and serious study.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The book is enjoyable ... and features a wide array of topics, many connected in some way with Streater's anti-Bohmian stance. ... Naturally, those who defend any of the lost causes covered will wish to buy this book, as will those interested in foundations of physics research more generally." (Dean Rickles, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 j)
