      The interaction of physics and philosophy is also a recurring topic in pop-science writing, and as it happens, I've recently read three books that touch on this topic to varying degrees (thanks to. Philosophy is the study of wisdom, and can emerge in our conversations in social media, in school, around the family dinner table, and even in the car. The text uses materials that are 2, years old, and materials that were in the news this year.

Penrose's Road to Reality and Smolin's Trouble with Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next are controversial, but are by philosophizing physicists, and delve into many current topics.

It follows that there is no sharp line to be drawn between philosophy of physics and physics itself. Some of the best work in the philosophy of physics is.

Philosophy of physics can be broadly lumped into three areas: interpretations of quantum mechanics: mainly concerning issues with how to formulate an adequate response to the the nature of space and time: Are space and time substances, or purely relational.
