No time to be brief : a scientific biography of Wolfgang Pauli by Charles P Enz( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book retraces the life of the physicist Wolfgang Pauli, analyses his scientific work, and describes the evolution of his thinking. Pauli spent 30 years as a Professor at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, and this period occupies 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 is revealed, namely his association with C.G. Jung and his school of psychology."--Jacket

Writings on physics and philosophy by Wolfgang Pauli( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wolfgang Pauli was not only a Nobel laureate and one of the creators of modern physics, but also an eminent philosopher of modern science. In his essays he writes about space, time and causality, symmetry and the exclusion principle, but also about the role of the unconscious in modern science. His famous article on Kepler is included as well as essays on Bohr, Ehrenfest, Einstein, and Sommerfeld. This is the first book in English to include all articles on physics and philosophy."--Jacket

Atom and archetype : the Pauli/Jung letters, 1932-1958 by Wolfgang Pauli( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and German and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1932, Wolfgang Pauli was a world-renowned physicist and had already done the work that would win him the 1945 Nobel Prize. He was also in pain. His mother had poisoned herself after his father's involvement in an affair. Emerging from a brief marriage with a cabaret performer, Pauli drank heavily, quarreled frequently and sometimes publicly, and was disturbed by powerful dreams. He turned for help to C.G. Jung, setting a standing appointment for Mondays at noon. Thus bloomed an extraordinary intellectual conjunction not just between a physicist and a psychologist but between physics and psychology. Eighty letters, written over twenty-six years, record that friendship."--Jacket

Physical reality and mathematical description by Charles P Enz( Book )

16 editions published in 1974 in 3 languages and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays is intended as a tribute to Josef Maria Jauch on his sixtieth birthd~. Through his scientific work Jauch has justly earned an honored name in the community of theo retical physicists. Through his teaching and a long line of dis tinguished collaborators he has put an imprint on modern mathema tical physics. A number of Jauch's scientific collaborators, friends and admirers have contributed to this collection, and these essays reflect to some extent Jauch's own wide interests in the vast do main of theoretical physics. Josef Maria Jauch was born on 20 September 1914, the son of Josef Alois and Emma (nee Conti) Jauch, in Lucerne, Switzerland. Love of science was aroused in him early in his youth. At the age of twelve he came upon a popular book on astronomy, and an exam ple treated in this book mystified him. It was stated that if a planet travels around a centre of Newtonian attraction with a pe riod T, and if that planet were stopped and left to fall into the centre from any point of the circular orbit, it would arrive at the centre in the time T/I32. Young Josef puzzled about this for several months until he made his first scientific discovery : that this result could be derived from Kepler's third law in a quite elementary way

Of matter and spirit : selected essays by Charles P. Enz by Charles P Enz( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays selected for this book comprise ideas presented in oral or written form between 1972 and 2000, some of them originally in German or French. They are preceded by a biographical and topical introduction. As the title suggests, attention is directed on the one hand toward the material world which is viewed in its extreme spatial extensions of the universe and of the elementary particles. In particular, the fascinating notion of the void and its fluctuating energy is the subject of various discussions, as is the subdivision of material bodies and its limits. The latter as well as the limit of gravitational stability are depicted in a diagram leading to the ultimate point of the Planck mass and length. The other topic of the title is the spiritual realm which, as in the Introduction, is based on reflections and quotations from religious texts. This rather personal aspect is also apparent in the frequent mention of the author's teacher Wolfgang Pauli, who on the psychological side is associated with C G Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz and on the physical side with Albert Einstein and the author's colleague Ernest Stueckelberg
