Einstein and the Humanities
Dennis P. Ryan, Hofstra University
Greenwood Press, 1987 - Philosophy - 214 pages
Albert Einstein's landmark theory of relativity, simplistically explained as all things are relative, sparked a revolution in thought affecting all fields. During the year of Einstein's 100th birthday, notable U.S. and international scholars gathered to discuss the Einstein phenomenon from an interdisciplinary and intercultural perspective. The ramifications of Einstein's theories for ethics and epistemology, religion, metaphysics, the history and philosophy of science, literature, politics, education, and psychology are all considered by the contributors.
