The uestion bears the same gravitas as the one regarding books Much like books the theatre allows me to experience something different Not like books or movies though the theatre often feels real since I share the same space as the actors While books can help me enter the world of the story and t

    I wish this had come with stage directions because it was difficult to understand some of the dialogue without knowing how they were interacting or not on stage Interesting subject first act was much better than the second I thought t

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book If you're interested in history of science and WW2 especially physics and atomic bomb I can't recommend it highly enough Of course this is a work of fiction and Frayn knows nothing about uantum mechanics but still it's interesting informative and cleverly written Why did Heisenberg go to Copenhagen in 1941?The Idea The idea for Copenhagen came to me out of my interest in philosophy It was when I read a remar

    Likes I don’t read many stage plays because watching them is always fun than reading them but I thought I’d give Copenhagen a shot It has amazing reviews and has been nominated for many many awards What could go wrong?I enjoyed the historical aspect of the play It’s based on a real meeting that occurred in 1941 between physic

Copenhagen

For most people the principles of nuclear physics are not only incomprehensible but inhuman The popular image of the men who made the bomb is of dispassionate intellects who number crunched their way towards a weapon whose devastating power they could not even imagine But in his Tony Award winning play Copenhagen Michael Frayn shows us that these men were passionate philosophical and all too human even though one of the three historical figures in his drama Werner Heisenberg was the head of the Nazis' effort to develop a nuclear weapon The play's other two characters the Danish physicist Niels Bohr and his wife Margrethe are involved with Heise. So what did you think I liked it A lot of really interesting historical stuff about the BohrHeisenbergSchr dinger triangle And I just had no idea about Heisenberg s involvement in the Nazi nuclear project Fascinating Can t imagine how I missed reading about that earlier Ah come on George surely you got out of it than that Well okay okay it was technically pretty impressive too The way he uses uantum mechanics as a sustained metaphor throughout I didn t think he d be able to pull it off but it worked Nice going Mr Frayn Damn you re still giving me that look George you know perfectly well that s not what the play was about It was about relationships People trying their best to be decent human beings when all they have are bad choices It was very moving You just won t admit it Look it was about uantum mechanics too Bohr was always sceptical about Heisenberg s matrix algebra but Heisenberg s line was that if it made the right predictions then it doesn t matter that there s no intuitive interpretation I thought Frayn was clever to twist it around and apply Heisenberg s reasoning to his own life I m not sure you really understood that bit I did so understand it It wasn t that hard to follow You did Yeah You re pretty bright For an arts graduate And you ve got a lot of emotional intelligence for a scientist I noticed tears in your eyes at one point Damn I thought I d got away with it Look it s both isn t it Science and emotion Neither one explains the whole story you have to keep going back and forward between them It s like what do you call it The Principle of Complementarity Exactly Hm You might have a point there Yes that can t be accidental He was smart to do that I was smart to figure it out You were And ah you re kind of beautiful too I was wondering if I could kiss you I was wondering when you d ask Mm Mmmm George Yes I think your place is closer isn t it Til Death Do Us Part (Vows, of nuclear physics are not Mensa Riddles Conundrums only incomprehensible but inhuman The popular image Julie of the Wolves of the men who made the bomb is The Right Swipe of dispassionate intellects who number crunched their way towards a weapon whose devastating power they could not even imagine But in his Tony Award winning play Copenhagen Michael Frayn shows us that these men were passionate philosophical and all too human even though Touched one Dark Prophet The Chronicles of Koa of the three historical figures in his drama Werner Heisenberg was the head Ugly Fish of the Nazis' effort to develop a nuclear weapon The play's The Math of Life and Death 7 Mathematical Principles That Shape Our Lives other two characters the Danish physicist Niels Bohr and his wife Margrethe are involved with Heise.

Nberg in an after death analysis of an actual meeting that has long puzzled historians In 1941 the German scientist visited Bohr his old mentor and long time friend in Copenhagen After a brief discussion in the Bohrs' home the two men went for a short walk What they discussed on that walk and its implications for both scientists have long been a mystery even though both scientists gave conflicting accounts in later years Frayn's cunning conceit is to use the scientific underpinnings of atomic physics from Schrdinger's famous cat to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle to explore how an individual's point of view renders attempts to discover the. view spoiler Bettie s Books hide spoiler

Ultimate truth of any human interaction fundamentally impossible To Margrethe Heisenberg was always an untrustworthy student eager to steal from her husband's knowledge To Bohr Heisenberg was a brilliant if irresponsible foster son whose lack of moral compass was part of his genius As for Heisenberg the man who could have built the bomb but somehow failed to his dilemma is at the heart of the play's conflict Frayn's clever dramatic structure which returns repeatedly to particular scenes from different points of view allows several possible theories as to what his motives could have been This isn't the first play to successfully merge the world.
