Abstract

The Introduction provides the reader with a more detailed overview over the goal and the approach of this book, including the new features against previous publications. Special attention is paid to the importance of notions and to the relationship between classical and quantum mechanics. Another key topic is Schrödinger’s forgotten 1926 requirements to any path from classical to quantum mechanics. The approach of this book fulfills all four of them, and this will help to overcome several difficulties of interpretation. Mittelstaedt’s “reconstruction” of quantum mechanics is discussed in some detail, because there are several similarities to that approach. The Introduction concludes with the key lines along which this book is organized.

Keywords:
