The Rise of Modern Physics
by C. F. Von Weizacker, J. Juilfs
Translated By Arnold J. Pomerans


Contemporary physics as a coherent science, its historical origins in the concepts of classical physics, and the practical problems of its future development are presented here by two world-renowned scientists. The concepts of classical physics: mechanics, heat, light, sound, magnetism and electricity, are brilliantly related to the modern concepts of atomic physics, quantum mechanics and relativity theory - and all are clearly explained to give the reader an insight into all the characteristic problems of physics as a science. An important feature of the book is that the various branches of physics are not treated-as separate compartments, but are integrated with one another. In their introduction on the nature of physics, the authors pose the vital question of the use of physics for technological power and the moral aspects of atomic warfare. "Man can use language," they write, "for truth or for deception. This is his responsibility. Man can also use nuclear energy for his own benefit or for his perdition." The Rise of Modern Physics is a book for anyone interested in the origins of contemporary science, its present and future developments.
