Description:
Werner Heisenberg’s “uncertainty principle” challenged centuries of scientific understanding, placed him in direct opposition to Albert Einstein, and put Niels Bohr in the middle of one of the most heated debates in scientific history. Heisenberg’s theorem stated that there were physical limits to what we could know about sub-atomic particles; this “uncertainty” would have shocking implications. In a riveting account, David Lindley captures this critical episode and explains one of the most important scientific discoveries in history, which has since transcended the boundaries of science and influenced everything from literary theory to television.
f science is the attempt to extract order from confusion, then in early 1927 it veered onto an unexpected path. In March of that year, Werner Heisenberg, a physicist only twenty-five years old but already of international renown, set down a piece of scientific reasoning that was in equal measure simple, subtle, and startling. Heisenberg himself could hardly claim he knew exactly what he had done. He struggled to
find an apt word to capture the sense of it. Most of the time he used a German word readily translated as “inexactness.” In a couple of places, with a slightly different intention, he tried “indeterminacy.” But under the irresistible pressure of his mentor and sometime taskmaster Niels Bohr, Heisenberg grudgingly added a postscript that brought a new word onto the stage: Uncertainty ( Intro BOOK )
