As the proceedings of a symposium in honor of Victor Weisskopf at MIT, this volume contains papers by leaders of physics at the time, including M Delbruck, M Gell-Mann, H Bethe, T D Lee, B R Mottelson, W K H Panofsky, E Purcell, J Schwinger, S MMoreAs the proceedings of a symposium in honor of Victor Weisskopf at MIT, this volume contains papers by leaders of physics at the time, including M Delbruck, M Gell-Mann, H Bethe, T D Lee, B R Mottelson, W K H Panofsky, E Purcell, J Schwinger, S M Ulam, and others. Some papers address problems in the philosophy of physics, and physics and society, that are timeless in nature.

But the symposium had a historical significance, in that it took place at a historic juncture of particle physics - the emergence of the Standard Model owing to experiments that point to the existence of quarks. Some of the papers reflect both the pre-quark and post-quark points of view. For these reasons, these proceedings merit reissue and reexamination.Contents: Introductory Remarks (James Killian) The Energy Problem (Hans Bethe) Model-Free Views of Deep Inelastic Scattering (Julian Schwinger) Life at Low Reynolds Number (E M Purcell) A Possible New Form of Matter at High Density (T D Lee) The World as Quarks, Leptons and Bosons (Murray Gell-Mann) What Angular Momentum Can Do to the Nucleus (Ben R Mottelson) Physics for Mathematicians (S M Ulam) How Aristotle Discovered DNA (Max Delbruck) Is Negotiated Arms Control Possible?
