"Because he is born illegitimate, Friedrich Kargan lacks even a social identity. Moving to Vienna, he becomes involved both in revolutionary agitation and a love affair. Caught by the authorities on his first trip to Russia, he endures a Siberian interlude before escaping. Moving among various plotters and underground cabals across Europe, he eventually returns to Russia after the February Revolution. He becomes leader of the Red Army but comes to realize during the civil war that the revolution seems to be over before it has begun: the cause has been betrayed, yesterday's proletariat has become today's bourgeoisie. Exile might offer the only solution."--BOOK JACKET

Conversations with the sphinx : paradoxes in physics by Étienne Klein( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The path of paradox is the path of truth,' said Oscar Wilde, and as this lively and fascinating book reveals, nowhere is this maxim more appropriate than in the field of physics. Against all the dictates of logic and common sense, paradoxes are the very lifeblood of science, the means by which a theory can be proved; without them science would wither and die." "Etienne Klein is that rarity, a scientist who is equally at home in the world of literature and philosophy. Writing for those with no more than a general knowledge of scientific concepts, he draws analogies from the Ancient Greeks to the fables of La Fontaine, from Baudelaire to George Bernard Shaw, as he explores the nature of paradox and its ability to cast light on an apparently insuperable problem in the world of physics." "Scientists and non-scientists alike will delight in his analyses of seven major paradoxes: the problem of wave-particle duality, the paradox of the twins in special relativity, the paradox of the dark night in cosmology, the paradox of Schrodinger's cat in quantum physics, the famous EPR paradox which Einstein set against the current interpretations of quantum mechanics, the violation of parity in particle physics and the paradox of the irreversibility of time. His fresh approach and avoidance of mathematical formulae not only present these problems in an entirely new way, but enable any reader to understand and enjoy them."--BOOK JACKET
