Freedom for Contradiction is the English translation of a book by Hermann Levin Goldschmidt, in which he developed a philosophy of dialog first outlined in his Philosophy as Dialogic in 1948. In a nutshell, dialogic suggests to deal with the tension of contra- dicting points of view without trying to resolve them in something like a synthesis, as dialectics has it. The physicist Wolfgang Pauli, one of the founding fathers of quantum theory, saw a close relationship of dialogic with the concept of complementarity that Bohr introduced into physics. This resulted in a brief correspondence between Pauli and Goldschmidt in February and March 1949. Here we translate their interesting exchange into English, together with some background.
