Translated from German, this monograph recounts the life and work of German physicist Werner Heisenberg. It describes Heisenberg’s early studies and scientific work, including the formulation of his uncertainty principle, and it reviews Heisenberg’s efforts under the Nazi regime, including both his problems with promoters of “Aryan” physics and his work on a nuclear reactor. In addition, the author covers Heisenberg’s later life and struggle to develop a unified theory of matter. Also discussed are his personality, his private life, and several of his colleagues, such as Niels Bohr, Max Born, Wolfgang Pauli, and Arnold Sommerfeld. the book contains many photographs of Heisenberg and quotes by him.
