In Beyond the Quantum Paradox , Lazar Mayants dispels the mystery surrounding quantum physics to provide a clear explanation of quantum physics in a form that both students of science and interested laymen can easily understand. The book is not about physics alone, it offers a universal key principle applicable to any science, natural or humanistic, and to common problems of everyday life. A number of important paradoxes are settled (including that of Schrodinger's cat) and the important connection between probability theory and statistics is revealed. Some widely accepted and seemingly scientific views that challenge our understanding of the physical world are also rejected. The mystery of the photon is disclosed and there is also a brief discussion of the application of the key principles to social problems. This reveals, among other things, the fallacy of all social utopias.
