Niels Bohr - Perhaps Heisenberg's most influential mentor, he headed the Copenhagen Institute and helped to refine the work of Heisenberg, among many other young scientists. Max Born - Another of Heisenberg's early mentors, he taught physics at Göttingen. Later on, he would recognize the matrix patterns of Heisenberg's work and help to establish quantum mechanics. Albert Einstein - The most famous twentieth-century physicist, who differed from Heisenberg in two fundamental ways. First, Einstein never accepted uncertainty and believed that determinism was attainable. Second, he saw no justification for the separation of science and politics, and therefore used his international fame to campaign against the Nazis. Annie Heisenberg - Heisenberg's mother. August Heisenberg - Heisenberg's father. Wolfgang Pauli - A physicist who came of age around the same time as Heisenberg
