A great physicist, winner of the Noble Prize in 1927, here gives his views of man’s place in the world.  His position is unmistakable and he states it with clarity and vigor.  Mankind, in the author’s opinion, is far from a creature who fundamentally obeys inevitable laws; the universe is fundamentally unpredictable and man is fundamentally free. 

Co-winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1927 "for his discovery of the effect named after him" in X-ray radiation.
