about this book

Countless volumes have been written about Einstein's contributions, but few works depict such a comprehensive and personal portrait. Gathered under the supervision of Einstein himself, Ideas and Opinions contains essays from early in his career until his last writing of 1954, the year before his death. In the first part of the book, Einstein focuses on aspects of human existence beyond the scope of the purely scientific world, demonstrating a keen awareness of the importance of the moral and intellectual aspects of nature. The second section provides a thorough overview of Einstein's major contributions to science. Ideas and Opinions contains essays on subjects ranging from atomic energy, relativity, and religion to human rights, government, and economics. Previously published articles, speeches, and letters are gathered here to create a fascinating collection of meditations by one of the world's greatest minds.
