Niels Bohr's Philosophy of Physics / Edition 1by D. R. Murdoch
Pub. Date: 04/28/1989
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Murdoch describes the historical background of the physics from which Bohr's ideas grew; he traces the origins of his idea of complementarity and discusses its meaning and significance. Special emphasis is placed on the contrasting views of Einstein, and the great debate between Bohr and Einstein is thoroughly examined. Bohr's philosophy is revealed as being much more subtle, and more interesting than is generally acknowledged.
