The following bibliography is an excerpt from Terry Christensen’s Ph.D. Dissertation entitled John Archibald Wheeler: A Study of Mentoring in Modern Physics. I would like to thank Terry Christensen and Kenneth Ford for their assistance.
This is a rather extensive bibliography, as such, please refer to the following list of quotations compiled by Kip Thorne and Wojciech Zurek as a guide. The material contained in this archive covers roughly the second half of Wheeler’s career.
Here are some of the books written by Wheeler:
co-written with Charles Misner and Kip Thorne
The last chapter of this book sets the tone for much of the work found in this archive.
Quantum Theory and Measurement
