Editorial Reviews

Review

“What place does the theoretical physicist’s picture of the world occupy among all these possible pictures? It demands the highest possible standard of rigorous precision in the description of relations, such as only the use of mathematical language can give” —Albert Einstein, “Principles of Research”

About the Author

Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was born in Germany and became an American citizen in 1940. A world-famous theoretical physicist, he was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics and is renowned for his Theory of Relativity. In addition to his scientific work, Einstein was an influential humanist who spoke widely about politics, ethics, and social causes. After leaving Europe, Einstein taught at Princeton University. His theories were instrumental in shaping the atomic age.

I enjoyed reading Einstein's thoughts about science. These are all written for a pretty general audience so anyone with an interest in science should be able to "get" them. OK, there were a few differential equations in one or two of the essays, but they are easy to understand and not needed to get the point.

I found the overlap in ideas with the other book from this series I have read - the one on Einstein the humanitarian - interesting. I think I understand the editors reasons for placing an essay in one book as compared to the other, but the overlap does exist.

It is also interesting seeing Newtonian physics as seen from the point of view of the one who replaced it. Fun stuff.

The expansion of the mind can be as infinite as the universe. A must read for science lovers and even those curious to know more.
