[ physicists | philosophers ]

The following list is intended to be of interest to and useful for those working in the philosophy of physics. It includes physicists and philosophers who, in one way or another, work on the philosophy/foundations of physics. There are bound to be many omissions and errors; please e-mail me if you notice any. (*N.B.* in many cases the philosopher/physicist classification is rather arbitrary. I have been guided, where appropriate, by departmental affiliation.)

indicates that on-line papers/lectures are available.
