|Other Titles:||the Maturing of a Concept by the Stepwise Accretion of Meaning|
|Abstract:||I will begin by identifying 12 layers of meaning of the concept of light quanta as it is understood today. The main part of this contribution will then discuss some of the earlier layers. I will also briefly discuss the extreme skepticism with which the concept of light quanta was received between 1905 and 1922 and close with a thesis on what makes Einstein's thinking so exceptional.|
