Why Quantum Mechanics?
This chapter introduces the paradigm ‘quantization as selection problem’ by means of few historical remarks. They include Einstein’s 1907 reasoning, Schrödinger’s 1926 derivation of his wave equation, and Gödel’s theorem and Munchhausen’s trilemma. The latter ones concern questions, which can be posed, but not be answered within CM. Such questions transcendent CM. This book poses the question, how the mechanics of oscillators without turning points looks like. (“oscillators without turning points” means oscillators, which may assume configurations beyond the classical turning points.)Total Pages: 79-88 (10)
