Heisenberg forwards his Athens lecture, ‘Natural Law and the Structure of Matter’
Description  

TLS in German, signed “W. Heisenberg,” one page, 8.25 x 11.5, Max Planck Institute for Physics and Astrophysics letterhead, September 17, 1964. Letter to Ukrainian writer and publisher Ihor Kostetsky, in full (translated): “Thank you for sending me your pamphlet about questions of translating Shakespeare into Slavic languages. I am looking forward to reading it. Since at the end of your letter you mention my Athens presentation, I am sending you a copy of the presentation, which was given in English. The write-up in the German papers, to my mind, is flawed in its presentation of the content of the presentation.” In fine condition. On June 3, 1964, Heisenberg delivered a lecture titled 'Natural Law and the Structure of Matter' before a distinguished crowd at the Greek Hill of Pynx in Athens; it was published shortly thereafter in Frontiers of Modern Scientific Philosophy and Humanism. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
