Henry Margenau: Scientific Indeterminism and Human Freedom (Original Hardcover)

0 out of 5

$10.00

Henry Margenau gave the 20th Wimmer Lecture on Scientific Indeterminism and Human Freedom in 1966, and this hardcover 110-page edition was published two years later. A number of original hardcover books was discovered during a building renovation and are now available.

Margeneau was born in Bielefeld, Germany and obtained a bachelor’s degree from Midland Lutheran College, Nebraska, his M.Sc. from the University of Nebraska and a Ph.D. from Yale. He worked on the theory of microwaves and the development of duplexing systems that enabled a single radar antenna to both transmit and receive signals. He also worked on spectral line broadening, a technique used to analyze and review the dynamics of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

He wrote extensively on science, his works including Ethics and Science, The Nature of Physical Reality, Quantum Mechanics and Integrative Principles of Modern Thought. He embraced indeterminism as the first step toward a solution of the problem of human freedom. Then in 1982 he called his two-stage model of free will a “solution” to what had heretofore been seen as mere “paradox and illusion.” Separating “free” and “will” in a temporal sequence, he named the two stages simply “chance” followed by “choice.”
