This is a generous book, rich with detail.

This is a generous book, rich with detail. A stellar array of twenty historians and philosophers, artists and scientists, and writers and critics has contributed to this fascinating examination of Albert Einstein's legacy and its relevance for our times

We all recognize Albert Einstein for his unparalleled contributions to 20th-century physics, in which he established a radically new . But few of us know much about his broader impact on philosophy, art, and modern culture.

We all recognize Albert Einstein for his unparalleled contributions to 20th-century physics, in which he established a radically new style of scientific thought founded in the simplicity, rationality and symmetry of Nature. This book, based on contributions to the Berlin Einstein Symposium of 2005, helps fill this gap in our appreciation of the man and his works

This exceptional book about the legacy of Albert Einstein is a must for anyone who seriously wants to understand the great man's profound and varied gifts to our world.

This exceptional book about the legacy of Albert Einstein is a must for anyone who seriously wants to understand the great man's profound and varied gifts to our world. It is a collection of 20 highly diverse and brilliantly written essays by world-class scholars from six countries, based on the lectures they gave during a gathering in Berlin in 2005 to celebrate the centenary of Albert Einstein's Annus Mirabilis.

Books on Einstein are scarcely in short supply but much of this collection feels fresh, probably because, astonishingly, Einstein's work is still, at the forefront of physics. But it's also because his life touched so many worlds outside science, including nuclear weapons, Nazi Germany, Zionism and the Arab-Israeli conflict, civil rights and the arts. -Andrew Robinson, Financial Times. At turns illuminating and disorientating, this is a book that I can recommend to all those interested in that eternal enigma, Albert Einstein. -Brian Foster, Physics World.

About:
__
More than fifty years after his death, Albert Einstein's vital engagement with the world continues to inspire others, spurring conversations, projects, and research, in the sciences as well as the humanities. Einstein for the 21st Century shows us why he remains a figure of fascination.
In this wide-ranging collection, eminent artists, historians, scientists, and social scientists describe Einstein's influence on their work, and consider his relevance for the future. Scientists discuss how Einstein's vision continues to motivate them, whether in their quest for a fundamental description of nature or in their investigations in chaos theory; art scholars and artists explore his ties to modern aesthetics; a music historian probes Einstein's musical tastes and relates them to his outlook in science; historians explore the interconnections between Einstein's politics, physics, and philosophy; and other contributors examine his impact on the innovations of our time. Uniquely cross-disciplinary, Einstein for the 21st Century serves as a testament to his legacy and speaks to everyone with an interest in his work.
The contributors are Leon Botstein, Lorraine Daston, E. L. Doctorow, Yehuda Elkana, Yaron Ezrahi, Michael L. Friedman, Jürg Fröhlich, Peter L. Galison, David Gross, Hanoch Gutfreund, Linda D. Henderson, Dudley Herschbach, Gerald Holton, Caroline Jones, Susan Neiman, Lisa Randall, Jürgen Renn, Matthew Ritchie, Silvan S. Schweber, and A. Douglas Stone.
