The following is a book I'm working on:

Unity, Disunity and Pluralism in Science

The following are papers on the foundations of Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, Unified Field Theories, and Quantum Geometrodynamics:

Phase transitions and Critical Phenomena

The Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics
published as: http://www.springerlink.com/content/g047367766j30t07/

The Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Field Theory
published as: http://www.springerlink.com/content/m474808n785m3491/

Einstein's Dream
Lecture notes of lecture given at the international conference The Nature of Reality honoring the 150th birthday of Tagore, held at the Indian Institute for Advanced Study in Shimla, India, March 4-6, 2012.

Atomic Discourse in the Feynman Lectures on Physics
published as: http://www.springerlink.com/content/v60l01k93n272141/

The Structure of Superspace
published in: Studies in Topology, Academic Press, 1975
(This paper is related to Wheeler's notions of quantum geometrodynamics; it includes my defining a complete metric on the space of isometry classes of compact metric spaces-it was later rediscovered by Gromov and is called the Gromov metric.)

The following is a survey article and book on pro-homotopy theory and lecture notes on Adelic Homotopy Theory:
