9780199588152: No Time to be Brief: A scientific biography of Wolfgang Pauli

This book retraces the life of the physicist Wolfgang Pauli, analyses his scientific work, and describes the evolution of his thinking. Pauli spent 30 years as a professor at the Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich, which occupies a central place in this biography. It would be incomplete, however, without a rendering of Pauli's sarcastic wit and, most importantly, of the world of his dreams. It is through the latter that quite a different aspect of Pauli's life comes in, namely his association with the psychology of C.G. Jung and his school.

About the Author:


Professor Charles Enz was Wolfgang Pauli's last research assistant, form 1956 to 1959. He then held appointments at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, the University of Neuchatel, Cornell University, before taking up a post as Professor of Theoretical Physics at Geneva University in 1964. He has been a Fellow of hte American Physical Society since 1986, and a member of the Pauli Committee, CERN, Geneva, since 1985.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "It should remain a standard reference work for years to come ... Enz's account is a work of impressive scholarship, allied to a sympathetic insight into the character and milieu of his subject. He is owed a debt of gratitude by all physicists, historians of
science and by anyone interested in the story of those heroic years when our understanding of the physical world underwent such radical change."

--Times Higher Education Supplement

"It is a fascinating reading, indeed, the life of this famous physicist, the evolution of his thinking, the world of his dreams, ideals, accomplishments and failures. Highly recommended to all those working in the field, and, equally of lovers of good literature"

--Zentralblatt MATH

"This book is a labour of love ... it is a marvellous, meaty, read."

--Materials World

"Enz's portrait fascinates."

--Science

"Enz has given us an authentic portrait of one of the great spirits of our time."

--Nature

"A must for any physics library."

--Physics Today

"An immensely valuable book... a gold mine of information, not only about Pauli himself but also about the rich history of quantum physics... providing many invaluable notes and references."

--Physics World
