The Hidden-Variables Controversy in Quantum Mechanics.
Pinch, Trevor J.
Physics Education, v14 n1 p48-52 Jan 1979
Describes the controversy over the hidden variable in quantum mechanics, especially over Bohm's theory, and the criticism and rejection it received as a result of the erroneous application of Von Neumann's impossibility proof, rather than Bohn's theory itself. Concludes that science, especially physics, is not permeated by social factors. (GA)
