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
