Publisher Synopsis

"Professor Hess was the first (with Prof. Walter Philipp) who proposed to treat time as a kind of hidden variable and criticized the frequentist proofs of the Bell inequality. And this excellent book is about Hess's position, about stormy debates in which he actively participated during the Vaxjo series of conferences on reconsideration of quantum foundations. This book is about intriguing and still unsolved problems in the foundations of quantum mechanics as well as about its great future, its future beyond the Copenhagenian prison." -Prof. Andrei Khrennikov, Linnaeus University, Sweden "This book is indispensable to anyone who is interested in knowing how paradoxes in physics are created, cultivated, and resolved. It paves the way for the demystification of the alleged mysteries of quantum physics." -Prof. Hans De Raedt, University of Groningen, the Netherlands "This book describes in an empathic way the clash between two great minds in science. Did Bell definitely change the way we should look at nature, or was Einstein right after all? The author makes a convincing case." -Prof. Theo Nieuwenhuizen, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands "We often hear that experiments have revealed unmistakable violations of the Bell inequalities and, therefore, that nature allows instantaneous influence over long distances. In Einstein Was Right! Karl Hess convincingly shows that both claims are overstated. This happy blend of solid science, accessible prose, and personal recollections summarizes 15 years of research and debate with colleagues, collaborators, and opponents." -Prof. Louis Marchildon, Universite du Quebec a Trois-Rivieres, Canada "Many books on this topic tend to either lose the reader in a mathematical maze or paint a picture with the broadest brushstrokes possible. Hess manages to strike an incredible balance, however. From the outset he candidly states to the reader that explaining such a complex subject is rather difficult without the use of some very basic mathematics. But he doesn't fall into the trap of relying on maths wholeheartedly to express his views. He continuously engages the reader by tackling concepts many have seen popularised throughout pop culture such as teleportation and space-time." -Matt Gunther, Chemistry World, February 2015 Read more...
