Over forty well known scientists from all over the international talk about the paintings and impact of Werner Heisenberg. The papers consequence from the symposium held by way of the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung at the social gathering of the one centesimal anniversary of Heisenberg's beginning, some of the most vital physicists of the 20 th century and cofounder of modern day quantum mechanics. Taking atomic and laser physics as their start line, the scientists illustrate the impression of Heisenberg's theories on astroparticle physics, high-energy physics and string idea correct as much as processing quantum info.

Example text

It appears that the issue is far more subtle than the usual dichotomy between its individual versus collective-ensemble meaning. 4. Abstraction Given its radical departure from the Anschaulichkeit of classical physics, and the sophistication of its mathematical formalism, quantum theory is often considered as the most prominent example of the increasingly abstract turn of fundamental research. We just saw how Heisenberg himself acknowledged the highly abstract status of the symbols used in quantum mechanics.

Feb. 1958. to V. F. Weisskopf “In general I feel that my critical attitude and Heisenberg’s optimism represent a good combination. Also I believe that Heisenberg has an excellent adviser for mathematical questions in Symanzik. We will soon see what comes out to all this. The main thing remains, that I still find the situation extremely interesting”. In such a way Pauli behaved until Feb. 1958 to Heisenberg’s Nonlinear Spinortheory. In the theoretical physics group of Max Planck Institut for Physics in those days, our Heisenberg group were called sometimes as Prophets party while the others were called as Puritans party.

In a conference given in Budapest in 1941, Heisenberg introduced in full extent the important and highly epistemological issue of the theories of light of Goethe and Newton 7). It served his purpose to illustrate and further discuss the often stigmatized opposition between the dry, artificial questioning of Nature through the method of exact sciences, and the intuitive inquiry of Goethe, closer to a global appraisal and respectful of inner experience. Throughout the text of his conference, Heisenberg definitely shows an understanding, even sympathy towards Goethe’s fight against the “imperialism” of modern science represented by Newton.
