Overview

The World As I See It by Albert Einstein

The Einstein revealed in these writings is witty, keenly perceptive, and deeply concerned for humanity. Einstein believed in the possibility of a peaceful world and in the high mission of science to serve human well-being. As we near the end of a century in which science has come to seem more and more remote from human values, Einstein's perspective is indispensable.

About the Author

Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was born in Germany and became an American citizen in 1934. 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.

Neil Berger, an associate professor emeritus of mathematics, taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science department from 1968 until his retirement in 2001. He was the recipient of the first Monroe H. Martin Prize (1975), which is now awarded by the University of Maryland every five years for a singly authored outstanding applied mathematics research paper. He has published numerous papers and reviews in his fields of expertise, which include elasticity, tensor analysis, scattering theory, and fluid mechanics.

I'm personally not a fan of the reckless scientists of our time but it is a very intersting look into the past through the eyes of an intellegent, if somewhat delusional, man.

This is the Hephaestus cabin. Little space is taken up by beds, as they are in private rooms below. Tools, nuts, bolts, and other pieces of machinary litter the cabin. Schematics are tacked up on bulletin boards and a fire pole comes from above. All sorts of forged weapons are hung on walls or in cabinets. ~Jasmine ***Chiron***
