Albert Einstein: Physicist, Philosopher, Humanitarian Mondays, Aug. 21 and 289:30 – 11:30 A.M.
In May 1905, an unknown 26 year old Swiss patent clerk wrote to a friend about four scientific papers he had been working on in his spare time. He casually alluded to one as “revolutionary”, and he confidently asserted that another would modify the “theory of space and time”. This industrious office worker was Albert Einstein, and with these papers he changed the face of physics. Eventually, he would achieve fame and influence not only as a scientist but also as a philosopher and a humanitarian, involved with some of the most profound issues of the day. So identified has Einstein become with the changes wrought in science and culture that Time magazine named him “person of the century”. We will use the Great Courses tapes to learn about this magnificent man.
