Richard Healey


 I am currently concluding work on a project "Physics without Building Blocks" for which I have received support from the National Science Foundation under grant  SES-0848022. I am also beginning to develop a pragmatist interpretation of quantum theory, for which I expect to receive support from the John Templeton Foundation, who have already indirectly supported my research as a Templeton Research Fellow at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Information, Vienna under the program Philosophers-Physicists Cooperation Project on the Nature of Quantum Reality.
