Taking the Quantum Leap: The New Physics for Nonscientists
To Be or Not to Be…, May 7, 2000
A wonderful intro to QM, February 26, 2000
Wolf traces the origins of QM from the late 19th century & also discusses how it disproves some of classical physics’ most treasured suppositions. This is a great work for those intrigued by science & the "big" developments in physics of the 20th century.
So, for those who possess inquisitive minds, this is a splendid work. The biologist JBS Haldane once said "Reality is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine." After reading this book, I think that one would be inclined to agree.
This book entertainingly traces the history of physics from the observations of the earlyGreeks through the discoveries of Galileo and Newton to the dazzling theories of such scientists as Planck, Einstein, Bohr, and Bohm. This humanized view of science opens up the mind-stretching visions of how quantum mechanics, God, human thought, and will are related, and provides profound implications for our understanding of the nature of reality and our relationship to the cosmos.
