The following lists are all but complete; we're working on it. For each person we list name, affilation and research focus in the philosophy of physics. Many of those named here have areas of specialisation outside of the philosophy of physics as well, but we focus on the latter. (page under construction; if you are a philosopher of physics but not on the list, please let us know.)
