Recently our issues have been dominated by the pressing contemporary “physics and society” issues concerning the nuclear aspects of energy, environment, and national security, as well as some discussion on the relationships between science and religion. These issues still predominate, as is evident in this issue, and will continue to do so. But we should not be ignoring “physics and philosophy” issues, especially when these also have significant impact upon our society. One such fundamental issue, fascinating to many of us, is the meaning of quantum mechanics. Fred Kuttner and Bruce Rosenblum illustrated public misperceptions based upon that topic in the commentary in our April issue. We have one possible follow through on that piece in the article by Travis Norsen in this issue. We look forward to publishing further discussion on the subject.
