From the reviews:

“Plotnitsky (theory and cultural studies, Purdue Univ.) analyzes the discussions and disagreements among the principals (mentioned in the title), and offers his insightful comments on the questions. … The discussions on probability and epistemology remind readers of 18th-century debates on the topic in which d’Alembert participated. This book should interest anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the epistemology of quantum mechanics, especially the issues thrashed out in the early phases. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Academic libraries serving graduate students, researchers, and faculty.” (V. V. Raman, Choice, Vol. 47 (10), June, 2010)

“This is an exposition of what the author calls ‘non-classical epistemology’ in close relationship with the emergence and development of quantum mechanics. … Plotnitsky unfolds a nuanced presentation of the so-called ‘Copenhagen spirit’ or, more precisely, of the ideas of his central hero, Niels Bohr, taken to their logical conclusion. … Plotnitsky’s narrative makes fascinating reading, and not only for those who are sympathetic to his views. … the book represents a challenge and motivation for the opponents of such views, particularly scientific realists.” (Vassilis Sakellariou, Metascience, Vol. 21, 2012)
