Werner Heisenberg Typed Letter Signed

Lot 6013 Details

Description
TLS in German, signed “W. Heisenberg,” one page, 8.25 x 11.75, Max Planck Institute letterhead, January 7, 1964. Letter to Dr. Hans Dichgans, in full (translated): "Enclosed I send you a copy of the letter, which I wrote according to your request to Hernn Kultursminister Mikat. You are welcome to make use of the contents of this letter as well as the content of my presentation to the members of the Bundestag. I am also very grateful to him for wanting to inquire once more about the distribution of DM 119 million, which should be available to the Ministry of Research in the coming financial year. I would be very sorry if more than half of this sum (as I was told) went abroad, since, to my knowledge, the amount of this 'membership fee' we are giving to international research has increased in comparison with the research contributions to science in Germany. In any case, genuine cooperation in international research ventures, which I very much welcome, is only possible if the research field in question is operated with great energy (and great resources) within the Federal Republic." In fine condition.
