E Mc It May Be Einstein S Most Well Known Contribution To Modern Science, But How Many People Understand The Thought Process Or Physics Behind This Famous Equation In This Collection Of His Seven Most Important Essays On Physics, Einstein Guides The Listener Step By Step Through The Many Layers Of Scientific Theory That Formed A Starting Point For His Discoveries By Both Supporting And Refuting The Theories And Scientific Efforts Of His Predecessors, Einstein Reveals In A Clear Voice The Origins And Meaning Of Such Significant Topics As Physics And Reality, The Fundamentals Of Theoretical Physics, The Common Language Of Science, The Laws Of Science And Of Ethics, And An Elementary Derivation Of The Equivalence Of Mass And Energy This Remarkable Collection Allows The General Reader To Understand Not Only The Significance Of Einstein S Masterpiece, But Also The Brilliant Mind Behind ItTheory of Relativity

Newtonion mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field This led to the development of his special theory of relativity He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on the general theory of relativity He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light.He was visiting the United States when

    Wow This book was quite a trek It was inspiring and thought providing and I think I understood the majority of it As to that last point, I m not sure.Einstein s writing is deceptively simple, at times He says something that, at first glance, seems to be obvious but if you back up and read it again, you find that there s a subtlety that sometimes boggles the mind The thing that impresses me most, though, is the number of questions he expressed Most people aren t comfortable admitting that they don t know They d rather make something up than let a question go unanswered This book, on the other hand, left me with questions than answers I got the sense that Mr Einstein believed in the mystery in the same way that others believe in God.In the end, I m really glad I read this It wasn t an easy read, but it was a worthwhile one.

    Science is the attempt to make the chaotic diversity of our sense experience to a logically uniform system In these essays Einstein attempts to bring the complexities of high level theoretic science to the layman He s partly successful I almost understand relativity now When he starts charts and equations, he loses me Perfection of means and confusion of goals characterizes our age Written in the 1940s and 50s these article also engage the idea that science is a natural outgrowth of living and has something to contribute, even to ideas like ethics, though Einstein admits, For the scientist, there is only being, but no wishing, no value, no good, no evil, no goal Truth is what stands the test of experience.

    More understandable than I expected.

    Most complicated theory in a lucid language.

    No easy reading I had to look up a lot of things.
