Summary

Albert Einstein's bold mark on our understanding of the world, which has persisted now for more than a century, shows no sign of fading. On the contrary, Einstein and his work promise to inspire, enlighten, and confound us for decades-indeed, for centuries-to come. In this fascinating volume, today's foremost scientists discuss their own versions and visions of Einstein: how he has influenced their worldviews, their ideas, their science, and their professional and personal lives. These twenty-four essays are a testament to the power of scientific legacy and are essential reading for scientist and layperson alike. Contributors include: - Roger Highfield on the Einstein myth - John Archibald Wheeler on his meetings with Einstein - Gino C. Segrè, Lee Smolin, and Anton Zeilinger on Einstein's difficulties with quantum theory - Leon M. Lederman on the special theory of relativity - Frank J. Tipler on why Einstein should be seen as a scientific reactionary rather than a scientific revolutionary From the Hardcover edition.
