The Quantum Enigma

Focus: Physics

The objective of this course is to explain how Prof. Wolfgang Smith solves “The Quantum Enigma” (the title of one of his books). In essence, Prof. Smith offers a meaningful interpretation of quantum physics based on the forgotten Aristotelian dimension matter-form. The plan of this course can be changed, but let’s try the following:

Lecture 1 – Introductory remarks about quantum physics. (2h)

Lecture 2 – Brief introduction to some Aristotelian notions. (2h)

Lecture 3 – Intelligible quantum physics? (2h)

Lecture 4 – Questions and final remarks. (2h)

Professor: Guilherme de Berredo Peixoto (UFJF)

Language: English

Mode of instruction: online

Courseload: 8 hours

Date&Time: July 25-28, 7pm-9pm
