    This book is the first interpretation of quantum mechanics I read that accounts rationally for it and allows one to understand how the two main schools of interpretation (that of Copenhagen and the realists) are simultaneously true. A meaning is provided to the wave function through metaphysics that reconciles quantum mechanics and common sense (if you don't believe me, just read it!). The author digs in a direction of interpretation that was given by Heisenberg - one of the founder of the Copenhagen interpretation - and he shows that this interpretation is already present in Heisenberg views and Zurik works on decoherence. In my opinion, this is a must read for anyone interested in the interpretation of quantum mechanics. The overall structure is: 1) objections against the Copenhagen interpretation 2) a brief presentation of the main schools of interpretation (Everett, decoherence, Gell-Mann, Penrose, Bohm, Wigner, Copenhagen) 3) brief introduction to the main notions of Aristotle... More > metaphysics 4) proposition of interpretation 5) exploration of the consequences (EPR paradox, Copenhagen and decoherence theories reunified, etc.) 6) consequences for philosophy 7) conclusion that gives a taste of how this work could be extended to string theory, and a few other things...< Less
