Item description for Writings on Physics and Philosophy by Charles P. Enz Wolfgang Pauli...
Like Bohr, Einstein and Heisenberg, Wolfgang Pauli was not only a Nobel laureate and one of the creators of modern physics, but also an eminent philosopher of modern science. This is the first book in English to include all his famous articles on physics and epistemology. They were actually translated during Pauli's lifetime by R. Schlapp and are now edited and annotated by Pauli's former assistant Ch. Enz. Pauli writes about the philosophical significance of complementarity, about space,time and causality, symmetry and the exclusion principle, but also about therole of the unconscious in modern science. His famous article on Kepler is included as well as many historical essays on Bohr, Ehrenfest,and Einstein as well as on the influence of the unconscious on scientific theories. The book addresses not only physicists, philosophers and historians of science, but also the general public.

Wonderfully Interesting Nov 17, 2007
This book is a wonderfully interesting series of philosophical writings by one of the foremost quantum physicists. Wolfgang Pauli, one of the originators of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics, provides incredibly interesting, if sometimes overly pedantic, philosophical perspectives on a number of issues. One of the more marginalized selections is concerning archetypes and reveals the strong connections that Pauli had with one of the foremost thinkers in the field of psychology: Carl Jung. I highly recommend this book for those interested in gaining greater perspective in the depth of thought that was involved in the development of perhaps the most original and groundbreaking theories of physics.
