By Michael Drieschner

This e-book provides a set of texts via the German thinker and physicist Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker (1912-2007), to be used in seminars on philosophy, commonly epistemology and the philosophy of physics or foundations of quantum mechanics, but in addition for classes on German philosophy of the 20 th century or the philosophy of technology. so much texts look in English for the 1st time. Weizsäcker grew to become recognized via his works in physics, later changing into popular as a thinker and an analyst of latest tradition and politics. He labored intensively on initiatives for the prevention of nuclear conflict and for peace commonly. – Texts approximately classical philosophy are incorporated in addition to on common sense, at the philosophy of biology and at the philosophy of arithmetic, on “death” in addition to on “power”.
