Philosophy and Physics

  1. Dec 14, 2009 #1
    I'm wondering who out there in physics world might believe that there's still some philosophy involved with physics? Quantum physics can explain gravity, right? General Relativity doesn't include Planck's Constant? Are we missing something mathematical, philosophical... any thoughts?

    And just to clarify, I'm thinking stuff like Descartes, 'I think, therefore I am,' along with his role in basic math. Think there's some mathematical complexity to it all.... or that we'll gain some philosophical insight (like e=mc^2), that continues us on our way?

    Thoughts appreciated,
