Quattro «grandi» della fisica moderna parlano a un pubblico di profani, cercando di evitare ogni oscurità tecnica. Con Heisenberg, uno dei fondatori della meccanica quantistica, sono Schrödinger, che ha posto le basi della meccanica ondulatoria, Born, caposcuola della fisica in molteplici campi, e Auger, scopritore in fotoelettronica dell’«effetto Auger». Dalle loro pagine emerge il quadro dei risultati raggiunti nella conoscenza della natura, e degli strumenti teorici che convergono o si fronteggiano nella spiegazione del mondo materiale. Alle relazioni di Heisenberg e di Schrödinger seguono due dibattiti in cui intervengono altri fisici, Rosenfeld e Compton, e studiosi di diverse discipline umanistiche. Le questioni affrontate sono avvincenti: la ricerca fisica, i suoi fondamenti filosofici, la sua storia. Le scoperte in questo campo sono tante e tali che gli scienziati non riescono più a coordinarle in modo da soddisfare quel desiderio di sintesi e di coerenza cui l’uomo non può rinunciare. Scienza e tecnica appaiono in questo libro non come una scelta che può essere messa in discussione, ma come un destino. Gli strumenti di cui dispone l’umanità hanno aperto problemi formidabili che, lungi dall’essere risolti, si ripropongono oggi in tutta la loro drammatica complessità. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… Four great figures of modern physics speak to a lay audience. With Heisenberg, one of the founders of quantum mechanics, they are Schrödinger, who laid the foundations of wave mechanics, Born, leader of physics in many fields, and Auger, discoverer of the "Auger effect" in photoelectronics. From their pages emerges the picture of the results achieved in the knowledge of nature, and of the theoretical tools that converge or face each other in the explanation of the material world. The reports by Heisenberg and Schrödinger are followed by two debates in which other physicists, Rosenfeld and Compton, and scholars from various humanistic disciplines intervene. The issues addressed are compelling: physical research, its philosophical foundations, its history. The discoveries in this field are so many that scientists are no longer able to coordinate them in such a way as to satisfy that desire for synthesis and coherence that man cannot give up. Science and technology appear in this book not as a choice that can be questioned, but as a destiny. The tools available to humanity have opened up formidable problems which, far from being solved, are re-emerging today in all their dramatic complexity.]
