Quantum of Action

It's wonderful when a writer takes you back to a turning point in history and points his or her finger at the very first mention of a fundamental concept. I'm reading Thomas Kuhn's "Black-Body Theory and the Quantum Discontinuity" and here on page 130 the book mentions the very first time when the word 'quantum' was mentioned. What a great adventure humanity have started with the introduction of this new concept!
