Reviews of Reexamining 

“Bokulich fully appreciates many subtleties that practising physicists occasionally understand intuitively, but are rarely explicit about. Her ideas are refreshing and original and presented with clarity and erudition. I unreservedly recommend her book to anyone wanting to understand the intricate connections between the classical and quantum worlds.”
Sir Michael Berry   Full review by Berry

“… this is a courageous book. More importantly, it is also a very interesting one, and my personal opinion is that Bokulich is typically right whenever she is controversial. This opinion is fed not only by the frequent strength of her arguments, but also by my impression that, as far as 20th century philosophers – as opposed to scientists like Einstein and Bohr – have set its agenda, the philosophy of science has become separated from the actual science it is supposed to describe by a wide gap. Consequently, scientists rarely take notice of its introverted debates … Bokulich’s book obviously attempts to bridge this gap. And successfully so, I would say.”
N. P. Landsman   Full review by Landsman

“Alisa Bokulich dwells extensively on the history of quantum mechanics and the philosophical ideas of its founding fathers and also on recent developments in physics. The book has thus become a goldmine of information and original ideas about quantum mechanics and its philosophy.”
Dennis Dieks   Full review by Dieks

“…a remarkable book, deeply thoughtful, written with admirable clarity, and full of interesting ideas. It should be read by anyone with an interest in the history or philosophy of quantum theory or in relations between scientific theories.”
Gordon Belot and Lina Jansson   Full review by Belot and Jansson

“The case study is a novel one and the arguments are strong and tight.”
Dean Rickles, Mathematical Reviews
