St Andrews

Studying theoretical physics and mathematics in University of St Andrews, United Kingdom.

Spend my time reading when I am not doing physics or mathematics. Literature, history, politics, economy but primarily philosophy. Aristotle, Berkeley, Kant, Wittgenstein, Russell, Heidegger, Nietzsche.

My particular interest-

The modification of the Standard Model. Quantum Field Theory etc.

The question raised by Immanuel Kant, 'Is it possible to have a synthetic a priori knowledge'.

Wittgenstein's last statement in his Tractatus,'7.Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent." Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Ludwig Wittgenstein.'

Malay Literature.

Discourse on 'the art of being governed'.
