The Structure of Physics by Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker, Thomas Görnitz and Holger Lyre pdf free download. Carl Friedrich von Weizs¨acker is certainly one of the most distinguished German physicists and philosophers of the 20th century—equally renowned for his
early contributions to nuclear physics and his life-long research on the foundations of quantum theory. At the same time, Weizs¨acker is highly esteemed by a much broader audience for his sociocultural, political, and religious thought.

His writings comprise more than 20 books, many of which have been translated into several languages. But throughout his life, Weizs¨ acker’s main concern was an understanding of the unity of physics. For decades he and his collaborators have been pursuing the idea of a quantum theory of binary alternatives (so-called ur theory), a unified quantum theoretical framework in which spinorial symmetry groups
are considered to give rise to the structure of space and time. Aufbau der Physik, first published exactly 20 years ago, in 1985, and followed by numerous reprints, was primarily intended to give an overview and update of this enterprise.

But the book was only published in German, and thus could scarcely have contained the subsequent insights and results of ur-theoretic research of the late 1980s and the 1990s, due mainly to the work of Thomas G¨ornitz. These circumstances were the main incentive for producing the present edition, which is a newly arranged and revised version of the Aufbau, translated into English, in which some original chapters and sections have been skipped, and a new chapter on ur theory and a general introduction to Weizs¨acker’s philosophy of physics have been added. A comparison of the present book’s structure to that of the original book can be found on page XIV, footnote 2).

The Structure of Physics should be of value to anybody with interests in physics, its history, or its philosophy, since it contains far more than the particular focus on ur theory in the central Chaps. 4, 5, and 6 of the first part. As a prominent eyewitness to the historical development of quantum mechanics, Weizs¨acker’s presentation of the system of physical theories in the second chapter and his way of presenting the general interpretive issues of quantum mechanics in Chap. 9 are both of special importance. Furthermore, Weizs¨ acker’s discussion of time and information in the second part, along with his analyses in the last three chapters of the third part, reveal him to be an original and outstanding philosophical thinker.
