The Quest for Reality: Bohr and Wittgenstein - two by Stig Stenholm

By Stig Stenholm

In either technology and philosophy, the 20th century observed a thorough breakdown of sure bet within the human worldview, as quantum uncertainty and linguistic ambiguity destroyed the cozy certitudes of the earlier. As those disciplines shape the basis for a human place on the earth, an important epistemological reorganization needed to happen. during this ebook, quantum theorist Stig Stenholm provides Bohr and Wittgenstein, in physics and in philosophy, as central
figures representing this revision. every one of them took up the problem of changing obvious order and simple task with a provisional realizing in keeping with constrained thoughts in consistent flux. Stenholm concludes that the trendy synthesis created via their heirs is much from passable, and the tale is so far
an unfinished one. The booklet will entice any researcher in both self-discipline fascinated by the basis of contemporary technological know-how, and works to impress a renewal of dialogue and the eventual emergence of a reformed readability and understanding.
