First edition. Series: Studies in the History of Modern Science, vol. 14. 8vo. xi, 177 pp. Diagrams, notes, bibliography, index. Beige cloth. Fine. ISBN: 902771648X The development of quantum mechanics is interpreted, in this book, as a dynamic interaction between physical, methodological and epistemological considerations, emerging primarily as a dialogue between two profound physicist-philosophers, Niels Bohr and Wolfgang Pauli. It is shown that Heisenberg's matrix mechanics, the quantum-mechanical transformation theory, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Bohr's principle of complementarity all had their roots in this central dialogue, and that the ideas characteristic of the interpretation of quantum mechanics were also essential to its creation. The book makes considerable use both of unpublished source material and of the large amount of detailed research carried out by historical scholars over the past 15 years. – Publisher.
