By Dietrich Papenfuß, Dieter Lüst, Wolfgang P. Schleich

Over forty well known scientists from everywhere in the international talk about the paintings and impression of Werner Heisenberg. The papers outcome from the symposium held by means of the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung at the party of the a centesimal anniversary of Heisenberg's delivery, some of the most vital physicists of the twentieth century and cofounder of modern day quantum mechanics. Taking atomic and laser physics as their start line, the scientists illustrate the influence of Heisenberg's theories on astroparticle physics, high-energy physics and string conception correct as much as processing quantum info.

But that is exactly what has happened during the past century, thanks to logical positivists, and to Reichenbach, Carnap and Popper particularly. I think Heisenberg-Einstein Context Principle 35 that it is most important today to distinguish between science in context - what the philosophers called the context of discovery –– from the context in science. Philosophers may choose to deal, or not to deal, with the former. But they cannot ignore the latter, namely the context of discovery in physics and in other natural sciences.
