About this book

Introduction

The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics has established the language that is generally used when quantum mechanics is applied. In Parts I and II and in the first chapter of Part III, the author describes the main features in the philosophy behind the Copenhagen interpretation. What then follows are his personal views on the basis of this "Copenhagen philosophy". The author hopes to convince the reader of the incompatibility of quantum mechanics with realism if the latter neglects the role of consciousness in the conceptions of reality. He also tries to pave the road for a timely discussion of the science-religion debate in view of a correct interpretation of the message of nature spelled out in the language of quantum physics.
