Beyond the atom : the philosophical thought of Wolfgang Pauli by Kalervo Vihtori Laurikainen( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Austrian physicist Wolfgang Pauli (1900-1958) was often called the conscience of physics. He was famous for his sharp and critical mind which made him a central figure among the founders of quantum physics. He also was an outstanding philosopher, especially interested in finding a new conception of reality and of causality. A careful study of the original sources of the past culminated in his study of Kepler and of medieval symbolism, a concept that played a central role in his discussion with Carl Jung on what they called the psycho-physical problem. Pauli considered the sharp distinctions between knowledge and faith and between spirit and matter as dangerous. He thought they should complement each other in our comprehension of reality. Professor Laurikainen here for the first time describes Pauli's ideas in detail. His book is based on the large and as yet unpublished correspondence between Pauli and M. Fierz. Its careful analysis adds depth and clarity to the few publications by Pauli on philosophical problems and explains why Pauli grasped the meaning of atomic theory more deeply than even Niels Bohr himself. The book should interest both philosophers and physicists and should encourage further studies on Pauli the humanist and his contribution to our understanding of reality
The message of the atoms : essays on Wolfgang Pauli and the unspeakable by Kalervo Vihtori Laurikainen( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and Finnish and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics has established the language that is generally used when quantum mechanics is applied. In Parts I and II and in the first chapter of Part III, the author describes the main features in the philosophy behind the Copenhagen interpretation. What then follows are his personal views on the basis of this "Copenhagen philosophy". The author hopes to convince the reader of the incompatibility of quantum mechanics with realism if the latter neglects the role of consciousness in the conceptions of reality. He also tries to pave the road for a timely discussion of the science-religion debate in view of a correct interpretation of the message of nature spelled out in the language of quantum physics
