Of all the developments in twentieth century physics, none has
given rise to more heated debates than the changes in our
understanding of science precipitated by the ``quantum
revolution''. In this revolution, Niels Bohr's dramatically
non-classical theory of the atom proved to be the springboard from
which the new atomic physics drew it's momentum. Furthermore,
Bohr's contribution was crucial not only because his interpretation
of quantum mechanics became the most widely accepted view but also
because in his role as educator and spokesman for atomic physics
Bohr was very much the patron spirit of the entire quantum
revolution. The conceptual framework which he proposed to provide a
new viewpoint for understanding the quantum theoretical description
of atomic systems became for most of this century the dominant
outlook of countless productive experimental and theoretical
physicists. He called this new framework ``complementarity''.
