This publication is a severe research, in response to a huge actual, ancient, and philosophical research, of ways empirical phenomena ended in the renunciation of classical physics and the way experimental study -- mixed with mathematical idea and philosophical hypothesis -- opened totally novel viewpoint. It bargains a radical, certain exposition of some of the stages of the advance of quantum conception, analyzes the logical dependence of every degree on these previous it, and leads the reader from the very starting of this highbrow technique to front line positions of present foundational examine in physics. "... the single complete historical past of the Quantum Theory." -- Dr. F. Hund, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Gottingen college.
