Abstract

Paradox is a word of Greek origin: it means against expectation, against the common opinion (parà + dòxa). The paper of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR)(1) in 1935 shocked the whole physics community because its far-reaching conclusions were against expectation. The EPR ingredients were only two: a reality criterion (what is called today a realistic attitude) and a firm belief in what is known as Einstein’s locality. Starting from this simple recipe they showed that quantum mechanics is not a complete theory: there exist elements of physical reality which have no counterpart in the quantum-mechanical formalism.
