Bibliographic Details


Title: Leon Rosenfeld: Physics, Philosophy, and ...

Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Hardcover

Description:

Hardcover. 368 pages. Leon Rosenfeld (1904-1974) was a remarkable, many-sided physicist of exceptional erudition. He was at the center of modern physics and was well-known as Niels Bohrs close collaborator and spokesman. Besides he reflected deeply on the history and philosophy of science and its social role from a leftist perspective. As both actor and acute spectator of modern physics and as a polyglot cosmopolitan whose life crossed those of many important people in both the East and West, as well as by virtue of his close collaboration and friendship with Bohr, Rosenfeld was an important figure in twentieth century physics. His biography illuminates the development, popularization, and reception of quantum physics and its interpretation in addition to the development of the political Left. The book draws extensively from previously untapped, unpublished sources in more than five languages. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Review: To understand quantum mechanics also means to understand the history of the first part of the 20th century: this is probably one of the main legacies, among others, of the life of L on Rosenfeld. -- CERN Courier "CERN Courier"
