Details of the book
Doing Physics: How Physicists Take Hold of the World

Krieger's stories focus on five of these models: the division of labor among particles, fields, and spacetime in the 'factory' of Nature; the analysis of the world as a clockworks of comparatively dumb parts whose composition is often surprisingly complex and rich; the play of freedom and necessity given by a set of kinship rules that govern the nuclear family; the setting of a simple stage, a vacuum, on which something arises out of nothing; and a mode of grasping the world with the handles, probes, and tools that make up a physicist's tool kit. In each case, Krieger shows that the deepest principles of physics are embodied in the physicist's craft and conventions.
