1. General Term: Classical Mechanics
Classical Mechanics A branch of physics that deals with the effects of energy and forces on the motion of physical objects, based on the work of Isaac Newton and on three-dimensional Euclidean geometry, also called Newtonian

2. Divine Action Topic: Berry, Michael. “Chaos and the Semiclassical Limit...
the presence of chaos in classical mechanics and its absence in quantum mechanics. If classical mechanics is the limit of quantum mechanics when Planck ’s constant h can be ignored, why does a system appear nonchaotic according to

3. Divine Action Topic: Cushing, James T. “Determinism Versus Indeterminis...
the importance of quantum mechanics. His central point is that “considerations of empirical adequacy and logical consistency alone” do not force one to chose the indeterministic view of quantum mechanics as found in the Copenhagen

4. Physics Topic: God’s Providence and Quantum Mechanics
if we recognize that the classical world is not an irreducible given but a result of the quantum world . Thus the laws which describe the classical world are approximations to the laws of quantum mechanics which describe how the

Action and Quantum Mechanics : A Fresh Assessment." Robert John Russell develops and extends the thesis that, if one interprets quantum mechanics philosophically as pointing to ontological indeterminism, then one can construct a

of time" contrary to classical mechanics , for which all phenomena are reversible in time. By the end of the nineteenth century, it had been shown that classical thermodynamics could be reduced to classical mechanics via statistical

7. General Term: Quantum Theory
in quantum mechanics (i.e., quantum statistics) is not only strikingly different from classical chance (as in the familiar ‘bell curve’), it actually gives rise, in a ‘bottom-up’ way, to the basic

8. Divine Action Topic: Clarke, Chris. “The Histories Interpretation of Qu...
problem of quantum mechanics: if it is a generalization of, and not an alternative to, classical mechanics , should we not use it to describe all of physics in a unified way? Yet if we do so, the theory predicts that macroscopic phenomena

9. Divine Action Topic: Polkinghorne, John. “Physical Process, Quantum Eve...
suggests that the standard classical account of macroscopic processes may need to be reconsidered. Complex classical systems point to the presence of a “pattern-forming causality of an holistic kind (‘active information’).”

10. Intelligent Design Topic: How Can an Unembodied Intelligence Interact with t...
Bohmian approach to quantum mechanics merely shifts what's problematic in the classical view to Bohm 's quantum potential). Richard Feynman was right when he remarked that no one understands quantum mechanics. The "mechanics" in "quantum
