Schlapp and are w edited and antated by Pauli's former assistant Ch. Enz.

His famous article on Kepler is included as well as many historical essays on Bohr, Ehrenfest,and Einstein as well as on the influence of the unconscious on scientific theories. The book addresses t only physicists, philosophers and historians of science, but also the general public.
