Summary
"In Quantum Dialogue, Mara Beller shows that science is rooted not just in conversation but in disagreement, doubt, and uncertainty. She argues that it is precisely this culture of dialogue and controversy within the scientific community that fuels creativity." "Beller begins with the emergence of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, Born's probabilistic interpretation, and Bohr's complementarity principle, demonstrating how theoretical concerns, experiment, logic, emotions, and ambitions all play a crucial role in the emergence of novelty. From there she proceeds to construct a radical new reading of the history of the quantum revolution, especially the development of the Copenhagen interpretation."--Jacket
