After Wolfgang Pauli’s return to Hamburg in 1924, he participated in the creation of quantum mechanics. His analysis of the philosophical foundations and methodology of physics played a central role in the so-called Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. The outbreak of World War II and the possible threat of Nazi persecution led him to the U.S., but he returned to Europe in 1946.
