Editorial Reviews

Review

“You are the only contemporary physicist, besides Laue, who sees that one cannot get around the assumption of reality—if only one is honest. Most of them simply do not see what sort of risky game they are playing with reality—reality as something independent of what is experimentally established.” —Albert Einstein to Erwin Schrödinger
 
“I am as convinced as ever that the wave representation of matter is an incomplete representation of the state of affairs, no matter how practically useful it has proved itself to be.” —Albert Einstein to Erwin Schrödinger

About the Author

Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was born in Germany and became an American citizen in 1940. A world-famous theoretical physicist, he was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics and is renowned for his Theory of Relativity. In addition to his scientific work, Einstein was an influential humanist who spoke widely about politics, ethics, and social causes. After leaving Europe, Einstein taught at Princeton University. His theories were instrumental in shaping the atomic age.

This is an amazing collection of letters between Einstein and three other giants who founded the modern theory of quantum mechanics and of relativity: Planck, Schödinger and Lorentz.
I especially enjoyed the correspondence between Einstein and Schrödinger, two men who had somewhat similar lives in the difficult times before the second world war: both refused to submit to nazi rules and refused to accept war, both ran away from the approaching war and both had the deepest thoughts on the foundation of quantum theories.
The correspondence is also interesting for the way the two men shared their opinions, always avoiding difficult mathematical equations to better evidence the roots of the perplexities and paradoxes solicited by the theory.
As a theoretical physicist, I strongly recommend all readers to read this 'little' book, which is far more interesting than any textbook on quantum theories.

I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A DETAILED RESEARCH INTO WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY FOR THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS. WHEN PUTTING THE PUZZLE PIECES TOGETHER, NOTHING HELPS MORE THAN TO READ WHAT THE MASTERS SAID TO EACH OTHER. EXCELLENT DOCUMENTATION PERHAPS NOT AVAILABLE IN ANY OTHER ONE PLACE. THANKS!
