Rivalry between Bohr and Einstein

does god play dice with the universe?


In the mid-1920s, Niels Bohr became the vocal supporter of the new quantum theory whereas Einstein, its leading opponent. Their debates are remembered because of their importance to the philosophy of science.

In this video, you will learn about the EPR paradox, a thought experiment which was proposed by Albert Einstein along with Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen, to show that quantum mechanics was incomplete.



The consensus view of professional physicists has been that Bohr proved victorious in his defense of the quantum theory and definitively established the probabilistic character of quantum measurement.
