This is an incomplete and perhaps unsystematic attempt of listing works in the philosophy of physics of the last thirty or so years. I did this by going through my own library, primarily to get an overview of with which publisher the most important books in the philosophy of physics have appeared. Hence the unorthodox ordering by publisher. Obviously, the list is highly incomplete. Please leave comments or send me an email for proposed additions. They’re very welcome! Big thanks go to Sam Fletcher for sending me long lists of works that I previously omitted.

Updated 1 October 2011:

I realize now that I have included many more titles that the organizing scheme is perhaps not very useful. Ideally, I would have the list fully searchable, perhaps in a .bib file. Any ideas?
