Synopsis

This book retraces the life of the physicist Wolfgang Pauli, analyses his scientific work, and describes the evolution of his thinking. Pauli spent 30 years as a professor at the Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich, which occupies a central place in this biography. It would be incomplete, however, without a rendering of Pauli's sarcastic wit and, most importantly, of the world of his dreams. It is through the latter that quite a different aspect of Pauli's life comes in, namely his association with the psychology of C.G. Jung and his school.

Prof Charles Enz was Wolfgang Pauli's last research assistant, form 1956 to 1959. He then held appointments at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, the University of Neuchatel, Cornell University, before taking up a post as Professor of Theoretical Physics at Geneva University in 1964. He has been a Fellow of hte American Physical Society since 1986, and a member of the Pauli Committee, CERN, Geneva, since 1985.
