Abstract Note  Offers an exploration of the relationships between epistemology and probability in the work of Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrodinger; in quantum mechanics; and in modern physics. This book considers the implications of these relationships and of quantum theory for our understanding of the nature of thinking and knowledge in general 
Contents Note  Epistemology and probability in quantum theory : physics, mathematics, and philosophy  Quantum phenomena and the doubleslit experiment  Heisenberg's revolutions : new kinematics, new mathematics, and new philosophy  From geometry to algebra in physics, with Heisenberg  Schrï¿½odinger's waves : propagation and probability  Bohr's Como argument : complementarity and the problem of causality  From Como to Copenhagen : renunciations  Can quantummechanical description of physical reality be considered both complete and local?  Essential ambiguity and essential influence : reading Bohr's reply to EPR  Mysteries without mysticism, correlations without correlata, epistemology without ontology, and probability without causality  "The mere touch of cold philosophy."
