In a close reconstruction of the genesis of Feynman diagrams the writer unearths that their improvement used to be continually pushed by way of the try to get to the bottom of primary difficulties in regards to the uninterpretable infinities that arose in quantum in addition to classical theories of electrodynamic phenomena. therefore, as a comparability with the graphical representations that have been in use earlier than Feynman diagrams indicates, the ensuing idea of quantum electrodynamics, that includes Feynman diagrams, differed considerably from previous models of the speculation within the approach during which the suitable phenomena have been conceptualized and modelled.
This booklet, first released 1931, examines the attitudes surrounding the traditional sciences on the time of writing, and contends that an unreflective trust within the strength of technology, and particularly in humanity’s potential to show such wisdom to noble ends, could lead on to catastrophic effects for human civilisation.
