Over forty well known scientists from everywhere in the international speak about the paintings and impact of Werner Heisenberg. The papers end result from the symposium held via the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung at the get together of the a hundredth anniversary of Heisenberg's beginning, probably the most very important physicists of the 20 th century and cofounder of modern day quantum mechanics. Taking atomic and laser physics as their place to begin, the scientists illustrate the impression of Heisenberg's theories on astroparticle physics, high-energy physics and string conception correct as much as processing quantum info.

Aber dort oben steht er in den Momenten, in deuen in vollster Klarheit das ganze Land unter ihm ausgebreitet liegt, doch vielleicht dem lebendigen Bereich nicht all zu fern. Wir verstehen, wenn fru¨here Zeiten jene leblosen Regionen nur als grauenvolle Úde empfanden, wenn ihr Betreten als eine Verletzung der ho¨heren Gewalten erschien, die sich wahrscheinlich bitter an dem ra¨chen werden, der sich ihnen zu nahen wagt. Auch Goethe hat das Verletzende in dem Vorgehen der Naturwissenschaft empfunden.
The problem, as he perceived it, has many levels of complexity, as it were, enfolded into it, from what he aptly described as the ambivalence of science to the paradox of all paradoxes that it is scientific and technological progress which controls moral progress and not the other way round. ” Heisenberg proposed then, as a guiding principle, ‘‘to consider any special progress in science or technology as a part of the whole, as something that cannot be separated from the general problems of our way of life, our environment, our political behaviour.

The Problem: Reconnecting Observation with Theory and the Frontier of Discovery with the Core-Context of Discovery In early 1926 when Werner Heisenberg and Albert Einstein were engaged in a dialogue concerning the problem of reconnecting observation with theory, the leading philosophers of physics, notably Hans Reichenbach and Rudolf Carnap, among others from the Vienna Circle, and later on Karl R. Popper, were pre-occupied with the task of imparting a new direction to research in philosophy, which was defined by them as the logic of science.
