    Baby Einstein Books is an imprint of developmentally appropriate, interactive books designed to introduce children ages to classic poetry, art, and foreign languages in a fun and accessible way. A combination of playful images, beautiful photography, and bold illustrations with multilayered text will captivate and stimulate babies and young /5(15). On one of their walks together in the early s, Albert Einstein told J. Robert Oppenheimer, “When it has once been given you to do something rather reasonable, forever afterward your work and life are a little strange” (Oppenheimer b, 2). Einstein had not been modest as a young man, but.

    HUMANITIES: For Einstein, you had to grapple with a large number of very technical subjects, and various language barriers, but still produced a generously sized and highly readable book about the most famous physicist of the twentieth century. How do you get so . One telling measure of the philosophical importance of Einstein’s new perspective on the ontology of spacetime is the fact that Schlick devoted his first book, Raum und Zeit in den gegenwärtigen Physik (), a book for which Einstein had high praise (see Howard and ). But what most interested Einstein was Schlick’s discussion of Cited by:

A PBS documentary (Einstein’s Wife: The Life of Mileva Maric Einstein) highlighted the role that Albert Einstein's first wife, Mileva Maric, may have played in the development of his theory of relativity, quantum physics, and Brownian doesn't even mention her in his own stories about his life, however. Was she really the brain behind the scenes, his silent collaborator?

The book effectively paints the science-vs-humanities chasm of the last years as the result of a network of cracks spreading from this impact between Bergson and Einstein.

The outward path of those cracks is tracked exhaustively here/5(47). Canales uses the debate between Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson as a starting point from which to discuss an astonishing array of thinkers, technologies, and cultural developments. The book is an innovative, rich, and almost encyclopedic exploration of a crucially important question.".

--Edward Baring, Cited by: The book's title is a little misleading in this respect—it's not all about Einstein. It is about the subject as stated in the subtitle. After an excellent introduction, Tippett talks to Freeman Dyson and Paul Davies about Einstein's God.

Both men are physicists/5. Einstein believed in an education built on the humanities, whereby the student could “learn to understand the motives of human beings, their illusions, and their sufferings.” It was only through this education in the humanities that the student could gain “a proper relationship to individual fellow men and to their community.”.

And out of those Albert Einstein books, we’ve asked you to pick just five. Your first choice is Albert Einstein: A Biography by Albrecht Fölsing published in What makes this biography so good.

It’s comprehensive, for a start. It is a very big book — one of the biggest on Einstein’s life. “A Treatise of Human Nature” by David Hume David Hume’s “Treatise of Human Nature“ had according to Einstein’s own words quite an influence on his development.

Exploring the link between science and human nature, or a scientifically applied moral philosophy, is the goal of this g: Humanities. The pleasure of Halpern's book is that he leavens his explanation of the history of Einstein's General Relativity and Schrodinger's wave mechanics in the quantum realm with engaging biographies of both men and the cast of characters in physics during the first half of the 20th Century/5.

Einstein was a rebel and nonconformist from boyhood days, and these character traits drove both his life and his science. In this narrative, Walter Isaacson explains how his mind worked and the mysteries of the universe that he discovered. Kindle Store $ Book Depository.

Better World Books. Hardcover, /5(K). Einstein on the Humanities. An education obsessed with science, technology, engineering and math, to the exclusion or neglect of the humanities, stems the growth and development of the human person, on the one hand, and unleashes technology without ethical constraints, on the other.

Only a fool would advocate such an education. The commonly held view of Albert Einstein is of an eccentric genius for whom the pursuit of science was everything.

But in actuality, the brilliant innovator whose Theory of Relativity forever reshaped our understanding of time was a man of his times, always politically engaged and driven by strong moral principles. Elizabeth Lewisohn Eisenstein (Octo – Janu ) was an American historian of the French Revolution and early 19th-century France.

She is well known for her work on the history of early printing, writing on the transition in media between the era Alma mater: Vassar College, Radcliffe College. Albert Einstein is the most influential physicist of the 20th century, and just might be the most famous scientist to have ever lived.

He was only 26 when inhe had four separate papers published, electrifying the field of physics and rocketing him to global : Goalcast.
