Summary:
Offers an exploration of the relationships between epistemology and probability in the work of Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrodinger; in quantum mechanics; and in modern physics. This book considers the implications of these relationships and of quantum theory for our understanding of the nature of thinking and knowledge in general.

Abstract:

This text explores the relationships between epistemology and probability in quantum mechanics, in physics as a whole, and in the works of Bohr, Heisenberg, and Schrodinger. It then considers the  Read more...
