O Gato de Schopenhauer versus o Gato de Schrödinger

Sei muito bem que qualquer um poderia me acusar de louco se eu seriamente assumisse que aquele gato brincando no gramado neste exato momento é ainda o mesmo que pulava e brincava há trezentos anos atrás, mas também sei que é um absurdo muito maior acreditar que aquele gato de hoje seja um gato inteiramente diferente daquele de trezentos anos atrás.

O Mundo Como Vontade e Representação (Arthur Schopenhauer)


If Erwin Schrödinger did not get his “cat” idea from reading Schopenhauer, then it is one those serendipitous coincidences of science and philosophy that, almost a century separating them, Schrödinger and Schopenhauer both happened to involve cat (or cats) in their efforts to communicate understandings of reality and philosophies of being that are actually quite similar. Moreover, the fact that Schopenhauer’s cats were widely separated by time itself may not prove to be irrelevant to the comparison of the thought-models.

Há de ser dito que Lewis Carroll também se encontra no meio deste angu.
