Embarking on a journey into the realm of quantum mechanics can be a daunting task for anyone. Its puzzling mathematics and bewildering predictions often leave individuals feeling confused and disheartened. But what if there was a different approach — one aimed to cultivate an understanding of quantum mechanics from its very foundations? This is the ambition of this book. Rather than treating quantum mechanics as an inception, the author takes a Socratic perspective, tracing the genesis of its key ideas back to the well-established roots of classical mechanics. The works of Lagrange, Hamilton, and Poisson become guiding lights, illuminating the path towards comprehension. Through a colloquial yet pedagogical narrative, the book delves into the elements of classical mechanics, building a solid framework of familiarity that paves the way for comprehending quantum mechanics.

Designed as a companion for undergraduates undertaking quantum mechanics modules in physics or chemistry, this book serves as an invaluable support. It equips learners with the essential knowledge necessary to grasp the foundations of quantum mechanics. As such, it proves equally beneficial for MSc and PhD scholars, and post-doctoral researchers. Its colloquial tone captivates the curiosity of any reader eager to delve into the mysteries of this enthralling field.
