Quantum

For many,Quantum Theory is a byword for mysterious,impenetrable science. Manjit Kumar explains its secrets and talks about his book. Be prepared to be educated and entertained.
.


Manjit Kumar discusses his book, Quantum,pitched at the general reader. A dramatic and superbly-written history of this fundamental scientific revolution and the divisive debate at its core.

Quantum Theory looks at the very building blocks of our world, the particles and processes without which it could not exist.Yet for 60 years most physicists believed that Quantum Theory denied the very existence of reality itself. Kumar shows how the golden age of physics ignited the greatest intellectual debate of the twentieth century and a conflict between Einstein and Bohr over the nature of reality and the soul of science.

Be prepared to be educated and entertained!
