The method of De Broglie and Schrödinger, which has, in a certain sense, the character of a theory of fields, does deduce, on the basis of differential equations, from a sort of consider- ations of resonance the existence of purely discrete states and their transition into one another in amazing agreement with the facts of experience but it has to dispense with a localization of the mass-particles and with strictly causal laws.[14] Who would be so venturesome as to decide today the question whether causal law and differential law, these ultimate premises of Newton’s treatment of nature, must definitely be abandoned?

To the Editor in Chief of Der Schild [1] [Berlin, after 29 March 1927][2] Please do not send me your newspaper again.[3] This imitation of the goyim’s[4] evil ¢intellectual² ethical attitudes (glorification of mass murder), com- bined with tail wagging, heroism, and hypocrisy, is intolerable to me. Respectfully, A. E.
