Heinz R. Pagels, The Cosmic Code: Quantum Physics as the Language of Nature – PhilPapers
Printed in Great Britain. Selections from His Writings. Pagels’ knack lies in his ability, by clever use of ingenious metaphor and common-sense analogy, to capture the essentials of difficult and tricky ideas for the lay reader. Get Over Your Damn Self. The Edge Between Physics and Psychology.
Pagels’ work is probably one of the best layperson introduction to both understanding and “interpreting” Quantum Mechanics. Some parts of the book are also unfortunately a bit outdated considering that the book was originally published inthis is understandable but most of the book is still highly relevant today.
The Cosmic Code: Quantum Physics as the Language of Nature
It is purposely light on the maths side for example, I would have appreciated some detail on fundamental items such as the Wave Equation, Bohr’s model of the atom, Schroedinger Equation, wave phase Pagels’ work is probably one of the best layperson introduction to both understanding and “interpreting” Quantum Mechanics. I have read a lot of physics books in the meantime but I finally got around to the book he recommended.
Facts and Speculations of Science. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: Are There Quantum Jumps? His presentation includes many of the more famous paradoxes, critical concepts, and experimental results now part of the interpretive debating lore, including Schroedinger’s cat, the Einstein-Rosen-Podolsky thought experiment, hidden-variable theory, Bell’s inequality, and nonlocal causality which he manages rather convincingly to reject.

It’s been 28 years since I last read this. Lists with This Book. Membacanya seolah-oleh berada dalam bilik kuliah!
May be the last quantum physics book I attempt to digest. Relativity and Common Sense: Books by Heinz R.
A physicist at a dead show back in the s recommended Pagels to read if I was interested in Physics. Relativity, Thermodynamics and Cosmology.
May cosmmic, Mitch Allen rated it liked it. Jan 23, Gregory rated it liked it. Physics has advanced in the years since Pagels wrote it. Trivia About The Cosmic Code: Heinz Pagels is an able theoretical physicist. Discovering Your Soul Signature. The two-part treatment outlines the history of quantum physics and addresses complex subjects such as Bell’s theorem and elementary particle physics, drawing upon the work of Bohr, Gell-Mann, and others.
Close Report a review At Kobo, we try to ensure that published reviews do not contain rude or profane language, spoilers, or any of our reviewer’s personal information. Pagels states that his is a divulgative book, nothing innovative if you look at the content, though the exposition of arguments results rigorous and fluen For the intent the author had, reminding it was written inthe book is lagels complete.
