4.0 out of 5 stars Bohr was a bully!, 23 May 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Schrodinger's Kittens and the Search for Reality: Solving the Quantum Mysteries (Paperback)
John Gribbin's book is the strongest refutation yet of Neils Bohr's Copenhagen interpretation of the quantum world. The refutation is given credibility by Gribbin's describing leading edge experiments (most performed within the last five years) that shakes the Copenhagen Interpretation to its very foundation. He also makes the reader aware that the mainstream physicists are guilty of blindly accepting Bohr's quantum "house of cards" without question. Why? Primarily because Bohr was an obnoxious intellectual bully who shouted down any objection to his interpretation and campaigned unceasingly and forcefully for its acceptance. Bohr's argument was given further unquestioned credibility by John von Neuman-one of the greatest of mathematicians-supposedly proving that no hidden-variables theory could properly describe the quantum world. John Bell-not one to be intimidated by either Bohr or von Neuman's unquestioned genius reputations-showed in 1966 that von Neuman's proof, "...is not merely false but foolish!" Sadly, Bohr succeeded in his propoganda mission and science found itself having to tolerate the ludicrous notion that the Universe exists only because we perceive it! For those who find this a bit hard to accept I would stronly recommend John Gribbin's book. Whether you agree with Gribbin or not the book makes one realize that "religious fervor" is not confined to to the religious community. Bohr for one was full of it!
