Shelves: philosophy
Difficult but essential reading. I know many philosophers in the realism camp that completely ignore the messy implications of QFT, but Auyang goes straight into the heart of the beast. This is a fine and concise introduction to everything from manifolds to renormalization. Have some reference (even Wikipedia) handy as you read.
