Riveting account of the development of quantum theory and quantum mechanics from Planck to the question of uncertainty vs. absolute reality raised by the Copenhagen Interpretation and the fundamental opposition to it's view of the probabilistic nature of the subatomic world raised by Einstein and Schrödinger.

Great history of science. ( )

I really liked this book, but it's probably not a good book for most people. While it starts out with roughly high-school level physics being discussed, the later portions aren't quite as simple so that likely limits the potential audience. All that said, it takes its time building up to the fundamental debate between Bohr and Einstein on Quantum Mechanics and I think it does a pretty good job in presenting both sides.

It's a very well written book on the history of an important field in science. Aside from the fact that it can get somewhat technical at times based upon the nature of the topic, I wish the author had covered the biographies of some of the people a bit better. In the early portions, he covers the biographies of the most important people very well, but the quality and depth of the bios drops considerably as he progresses through the book. Even some people who are presented as important people have somewhat sparse bios. That said, it's a minor point and I'd recommend this to people interested in science history.

I listened to the audio version and while the narrator did an excellent job, I think portions of the book (not large ones, but certainly parts of it) aren't well suited to audio form. I'm very interested to re-read it in print, though to understand these parts better. ( )

Einstein, Bohr... et le débat sur la nature de la réalité
  guyotvillois | Oct 15, 2018 |
Superficiel et profond... Beaucoup de mérite pour un ouvrage qui ose affronter un sujet "incertain" par nature! ( )

Kumar writes a conventional narrative history, focusing on the long-running debate between Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein, which took place from the mid-1920s through to the mid-1950s, over the adequacy of the quantum theory as a framework for fundamental physics.

Manjit Kumar's book is an exhaustive and brilliant account of decades of emotionally charged discovery and argument, friendship and rivalry spanning two world wars. In what also has to operate as a kind of group biography of Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Pauli, Dirac et al, the quasi-novelistic character sketches occasionally have a comic quality ("The son of a tax collector, Ludwig Boltzmann was short and stout with an impressive late 19th-century beard"); but the real meat of the book is the explanations of science and philosophical interpretation, which are pitched with an ideal clarity for the general reader. Perhaps most interestingly, although the author is admirably even-handed, it is difficult not to think of Quantum, by the end, as a resounding rehabilitation of Albert Einstein.
