O Deus de Einstein, afinal, joga aos dados

Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia 61 (1):113 - 128 (2005)

Abstract
Albert Einstein is considered the most famous physicist of the 20th century. His name still unfolds a myth: To what end con the human mind reach out? He claimed physics could answer the metaphysical question: Is the human mind able to achieve a theory of everything? If the first principle, called God, is in itself determined. then perhaps we can hope to be some day in possession of this theory. Metaphorically speaking, if God is not able to play dice, this means that its does not exists a free being. The article intends to show that Quantum theory reveals this to be wishful thinking that will not stand on experimental approach. Einstein abhorred indeterminism lo physics, because be wonted to avoid a personal God and man as a being endowed with freedom and responsibility.
