This treatment of the fundamental theoretical underpinnings of modern physics fuses the mathematical machinery of quantum mechanics with the philosophical world-view embedded within it. Designed to teach students ``how to think about the subject.'' the text clarifies concepts through physical imagery, allowing students to grasp the mathematics of quantum mechanics in its broader philosopical framework. A very desirable feature of the book, not found in other undergraduate texts, is the author's use throughout of the accepted language of contemporary physics: the Dirac notation. Includes approximately 200 problems, most with solutions.
