I don't know about the "best", but here are some suggestions. Cao's Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Field Theory is a comprehensive book on history and contemporary philosophy of quantum theory.. Penrose's Road to Reality and Smolin's Trouble with Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next are controversial, but are by philosophizing physicists, and delve.

From Physics and Philosophy: "Science usually advances by a succession of small steps, through a fog in which even the most keen-sighted explorer can seldom see more than a few paces ahead.

Philosophy played a crucial role in the two revolutions of 20th-century physics – namely, relativity and quantum mechanics – and continues to contribute both to foundational research in theoretical physics and to the articulation and critique of scientific method. THE PHILOSOPHY OF PHYSICS The Philosophy of Physics studies the logical and conceptual foundations of the physical sciences, as well as the metaphysics, ontology, and epistemology of the world that those sciences describe.

It is not so much a distinct and established academic discipline as it is a sort of boundary. This book provides a thorough and up-to-date introduction to the philosophy of quantum physics. Although quantum theory is renowned for its spectacular empirical successes, controversial.

This book is intended for people interested in physics and its philosophy. for those who regard physics as an essential component of modern culture rather than merely a tool for industry or war.

Indeed this volume is addressed to those students, teachers and research workers who enjoy learning, teaching or doing physics, and are in the habit of pausing once in a while to ponder over key.

Title: PHYSICS AND PHILOSOPHY. Catalogue Number: Format: BOOK. Philosophy Begins Where Physics Ends, and Vice Versa. Physicist Sean Carroll has some words of wisdom for physicists who might have less than complimentary things to say about philosophy. The investigation is carried out both from a historical and a theoretical point of view.

The main ideas of quantum physics are presented through a comparison with both classical physics and the development, from early Greek philosophy to modern rationalism, of the philosophical quest for a fundamental principle of reality or structure of matter.

Originally published inthis book discusses an emerging physical science that brought with it a fresh message as to the fundamental nature of the world, and of the possibilities of human free will in particular.

The aim of the book is to explore that territory, which forms a borderland between physics and : Like Bohr, Einstein and Heisenberg, Wolfgang Pauli was not only a Nobel laureate and one of the creators of modern physics, but also an eminent philosopher of modern science.

Opinions vary, but I really like Tim Maudlin's latest: Philosophy of Physics: Quantum Theory (Yes, he knows what he's talking about.) I realized the OP is asking for the Venn diagram intersection of those that understand QM, those that understand philosophy, and those that write well.
