Overview

This book retraces the life of the physicist Wolfgang Pauli, analyzes his scientific work, and describes the evolution of his thinking. Pauli spent 30 years as a professor at the Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich, which occupy a central place in this biography. It would be incomplete, however, without a rendering of Pauli's sarcastic wit and, most importantly, of the world of his dreams. It is through the latter that quite a different aspect of Pauli's life comes in, namely his association with the psychology of C.G. Jung and his school.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Writing a full Pauli biography is a task of moving mountains, and Enz ... is the first person to try. He starts from his own experience working as Pauli's last assistant and he draws on his sympathies for Pauli's varied concerns. ... The bulk of Enz's biography is taken up by careful analyses of Pauli's scientific contributions. Working through the publications paper by paper, the book carries the reader along Enz's own trajectory. The author has educated himself in a vast range of material, including work of many other physicists, and his insights will be very useful to anyone who wants to dig into Pauli's physics. ... Because Pauli's letters and papers were largely written in German, they are closed to most readers; Enz does a great service by writing his biography in English. ... Enz's portrait fascinates, and much in No Time To Be Brief will last. ... Enz's unique perspective and detailed analyses offer a great deal." — Science
