Overview
Anybody who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. Niel's Bohr's dictum bears witness to the bewildering impact of quantum theory, flying in the face of classical physics and dramatically transforming scientists' outlook on our relationship with the material world. While the theory has been supremely successful in its explanation of some of the major problems in twentieth-century physics, its meaning is nevertheless the subject of unprecedented controversy amongst scientists.
