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.

Assistant of W. Pauli, Zurich 1956-59. Member, Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton 1959-61 Professor of Theoretical Physics, Neuchatel 1961-64 Visiting Professor, Cornell University, Ithaca 1963-64 Professor of Theoretical Physics, Geneva, since 1964 Visiting Scientist IBM Research Laboratory, Zurich 1970-71 Fellow American Physical Society, since 1986 Member Pauli Committee, CERN, Geneva, since 1985
