Find out why Einstein valued creativity and freedom as the foundation stones of a good life, and how these two traits would inspire him and help to transform the world as it was known up until then.Isaac NewtonIsaac Newton seemed to be a most unwanted child of the world. Ignored by his mother, scorned by contemporaries, seemingly at war with the world in which he lived, Newton turned his energies to things unseen. His laws of motion and law of universal gravitation would set the stage for a most extraordinary life. Follow along as you travel from a rugged stone farmhouse to Trinity College, Cambridge to the halls of London exhibitions where Newton found himself the celebrity of the age. Looking back on Aristotle, and inspired by all that Galileo had brought the world, Newton made his life work much of what is heralded as the modern age. He saw what no one else did, and his vision saw into the universe. See how he did it, and why.Galileo GalileiGalileo Galilei began his career as a mathematician. Yet as fate would have it, he became far more than a numbers whiz. Here was a true Renaissance man; one who was greatly educated and a genuine lover of the arts. He was a fan of poets and a fine lute player.When in 1609 Galileo created his first telescope and turned his attention to the skies, everything changed. His discoveries as they came, could not be denied. Because of his years of study in the arts and humanities, Galileo was well prepared to bring his ideas into the light of day.Charles DarwinCharles Darwin thought he would be a clergyman after an uneventful childhood, where he hated school but loved the natural world. All that would change when he was allowed to be a part of a worldwide expedition to faraway lands. He was able to collect specimens and keep notes on all he experienced.This eBook takes a closer look at who Charles Darwin was, how he lived his everyday life and how influential he became; not just in his own day but into the modern world as well. Find out what interested his incredible mind and how Darwin presented his theories to a yet unsuspecting world. From beetles to butterflies, coral reefs and tropical islands, from apes to humans, learn how Charles Darwin's evidence speaks even to the world today.Michael FaradayMichael Faraday is regarded as one of the founding fathers of modern physics. His work in the field of electromagnetism revolutionized society, leading to new avenues of study and developments of technology that would leave the world changed forever. Without Faraday

EINSTEIN'S REVOLUTIONARY WISDOM (Seven Last Days in the Life of Albert Einstein) A Novel
This is the first extensive study in English or Chinese of China's reception of the celebrated physicist and his theory of relativity. In a series of biographical studies of Chinese physicists, Hu describes the Chinese assimilation of relativity and explains how Chinese physicists offered arguments and theories of their own. Hu's account concludes with the troubling story of the fate of foreign ideas such as Einstein's in the Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), when the theory of relativity was denigrated along with Einstein's ideas on democracy and world peace.
Wie groß ist eigentlich das Universum? Was wiegt unsere Erde? Und wie ist das überhaupt möglich – die Erde zu wiegen? In seinem großen Buch nimmt uns Bestsellerautor Bill Bryson mit auf eine atemberaubende Reise durch Raum und Zeit: Er erklärt uns den Himmel und die Erde, die Sterne und die Meere, und nicht zuletzt die Entstehungsgeschichte des Menschen. »Eine kurze Geschichte von fast allem« ist ein ebenso fundierter und lehrreicher wie unterhaltsamer und amüsanter Ausflug in die Naturwissenschaften, mit dem Bill Bryson das scheinbar Unmögliche vollbracht hat: das Wissen von der Welt in dreißig Kapitel zu packen, die auch für den normalen Leser ohne Vorkenntnisse verständlich sind. Das ideale Buch für alle, die unser Universum und unsere Geschichte endlich verstehen möchten – und dabei auch noch Spaß haben wollen!
Ist das Universum unendlich oder begrenzt? Hat die Raumzeit einen Anfang, den Urknall? Dehnt sie sich aus? Wird sie wieder in sich zusammenstürzen? Liefe die Zeit dann rückwärts? Welchen Platz im Universum nehmen wir ein? Und ist in den atemberaubenden Modellen der Kosmologen noch Platz für einen Gott? – Es sind existenzielle Fragen, mit denen sich Stephen Hawking befasst, Fragen, die Forschung und Lehre in den Zentren der modernen Physik ebenso bestimmen wie die Diskussion von Geisteswissenschaftlern. Dieses Meisterwerk eines Jahrhundert-Genies hat unsere Weltsicht verändert. Zugleich hat Stephen Hawking damit neue Maßstäbe für die Erklärung komplexer physikalischer Zusammenhänge gesetzt. In diesem Buch, weltweit inzwischen über zehn Millionen Mal verkauft, ist das Credo des großen Physikers enthalten und lebendig. «Der Physiker Stephen Hawking ist im Begriff, die Formel zu finden, die das Universum erklärt.» ZEIT-Magazin
PaperbackIn 1905, when Albert Einstein introduced a new theory of time as space-time, otherwise known as âlocal timeâ, some philosophers considered it as (probably) his greatest discovery. The reason, evidently, is that time is more important than anything else except life itself. But what, essentially, is it? Einstein did not give us the philosophical interpretation of space-time. That is a task for the philosophers. Samuel K. K. Blankson, the Ghanaian philosopher, gives one of the most lucid and logical interpretations of what Einstein called âtime, pure and simpleâ. The strange and extremely technical phenomenon known as âtime dilationâ, which inspired Einstein to discover his special theory of relativity, is lucidly explained. The reader will find the answer simple and most surprising, and, it is hoped, satisfactory too.
1932 warf Albert Einstein in einem Brief an Sigmund Freud die Frage auf, inwieweit sich aus psychoanalytischer Sicht der menschliche Hang zur Destruktion eindämmen lässt. Freud stellte in dem Antwortschreiben den Lebenstrieb (Eros) dem auf Zerstörung gerichteten Todestrieb gegenüber und zog daraus den Schluss, das die allgemeine Kulturentwicklung sowie die Angst vor der Vernichtungskraft moderner Waffen militärischen Konflikten allmählich ein Ende bereiten werden. In »Zeitgemäßes über Krieg und Tod«, 1915 mitten im Ersten Weltkrieg veröffentlicht, hatte Freud bereits ähnlich argumentiert und einen sich im Krieg artikulierenden Konflikt zwischen Triebleben und Kultur konstatiert.
Since the death of Albert Einstein in 1955 there have been many books and articles written about the man and a number of attempts to "explain" relativity. In this new major work Abraham Pais, himself an eminent physicist who worked alongside Einstein in the post-war years, traces the development of Einstein's entire oeuvre. This is the first book which deal comprehensively and in depth with Einstein's science, both the successes and the failures. Running through the book is a completely non-scientific biography (identified in the table of contents by italic type) including many letters which appear in English for the first time, as well as other information not published before. Throughout the preparation of this book, Pais has had complete access to the Einstein Archives (now in the possession of the Hebrew University) and the invaluable guidance of the late Helen Dukas--formerly Einstein's private secretary.
In a wide-ranging metaphysical discussion from consciousness, incarnation and death to politics, economics and science, the author describes a cooperative universe which responds to an individual's thoughts, and provides a user-friendly interface.
Through previously unpublished letters written to her best friend over 30 years, this collection offers an intimate portrait of Einstein's first wife and a troubled marriage that ended in divorce and depression.
NOW A MAJOR SERIES 'GENIUS' ON NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, PRODUCED BY RON HOWARD AND STARRING GEOFFREY RUSH Einstein is the great icon of our age: the kindly refugee from oppression whose wild halo of hair, twinkling eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius. He was a rebel and nonconformist from boyhood days. His character, creativity and imagination were related, and they drove both his life and his science. In this marvellously clear and accessible narrative, Walter Isaacson explains how his mind worked and the mysteries of the universe that he discovered. Einstein's success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marvelling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a worldview based on respect for free spirits and free individuals. All of which helped make Einstein into a rebel but with a reverence for the harmony of nature, one with just the right blend of imagination and wisdom to transform our understanding of the universe. This new biography, the first since all of Einstein's papers have become available, is the fullest picture yet of one of the key figures of the twentieth century. This is the first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available -- a fully realised portrait of this extraordinary human being, and great genius. Praise for EINSTEIN by Walter Isaacson:- 'YOU REALLY MUST READ THIS.' Sunday Times 'As pithy as Einstein himself.’ New Scientist ‘[A] brilliant biography, rich with newly available archival material.’ Literary Review ‘Beautifully written, it renders the physics understandable.’ Sunday Telegraph ‘Isaacson is excellent at explaining the science. ' Daily Express
Albert Einstein träumt. Von der Zeit, wovon sonst? Dreißig Mal nickt er ein, und jedes Mal erscheint vor seinem geistigen Auge eine neue Vision jenes sonderbaren Phänomens, in das unsere Existenz gebettet ist. Alan Lightman ist mit seinem Roman ein Faszinosum gelungen: Mit spielerischer Leichtigkeit begleiten wir das Jahrhundertgenie Einstein auf wundersam erhellenden Traumreisen durch die Zeit. »Dreißig kleine, federleichte Gedankenspiele ... ein wunderschöner, anrührender und saukomischer Erstling.« (Stern)
In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions: Does our universe have a beginning and an end or is it cyclic? Are we alone in the universe? What is the role of intelligent life, if any, in cosmic evolution? Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe's deepest mysteries. Vidal shows how the fine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations. He also explores whether natural or artificial selection could hold on a cosmic scale. In perhaps his boldest hypothesis, he argues that signs of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are already present in our astrophysical data. His conclusions invite us to see the meaning of life, evolution and intelligence from a novel cosmological framework that should stir debate for years to come.
Chronicles the life of Mexican artist Diego Rivera and discusses the artists who influenced him, his involvement in Communism, his family life, and other related topics.

According to Ivanna, our existence is not limited to a third-density reality but we are spiritually connected to the whole creation and the cosmic consciousness. When we allow love and light to enter our life and make them our driving force, a world of great opportunity will open up to us. The book will teach you to collect your tools and recognize your special talents which can set you free from fragmentation and limitation.
War Albert Einsteins erste Frau Mileva Maric das eigentliche Genie in der Familie? Dieser Roman rückt zum ersten Mal Mileva Maric in den Mittelpunkt der Geschichte um die Entdeckung der Relativitätstheorie. Die erste Frau des Nobelpreisträgers war maßgeblich beteiligt an seinen wissenschaftlichen Errungenschaften. Marie Benedict zeichnet eine atemberaubende Liebes- und Emanzipationsgeschichte nach, die Albert Einstein in ein völlig anderes Licht stellt. Zürich 1896: Mileva Maric, aufgewachsen in ärmlichen Verhältnissen in Serbien, ist eine der ersten Frauen, die am Polytechnikum studieren dürfen. Gegen alle Vorurteile und Widerstände gehört die ehrgeizige junge Frau bald zu den Besten ihres Faches. Ihr großes Talent für Mathematik bleibt auch einem ihrer Kommilitonen, dem charismatischen Physikstudenten Albert Einstein, nicht lange verborgen. Die beiden tauschen sich über ihre Arbeit aus, verlieben sich und werden ein Paar. Zusammen arbeiten sie an der Relativitätstheorie, zunächst weitgehend gleichberechtigt. Doch als Mileva schwanger wird und ihre gemeinsame Forschung die erste öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit erhält, wird sie immer unsichtbarer im Schatten ihres Mannes, der als strahlendes Genie bis heute weltberühmt ist. Marie Benedict erzählt in ihrem biografischen Roman die wahre Geschichte einer Frau, die mit ihrer Forschung Bahnbrechendes geleistet hat und dennoch bis heute eine Unbekannte ist.»Die bewegende Geschichte von Albert Einsteins erster Frau, einer brillanten Wissenschaftlerin, die ihr Leben in seinem Schatten fristen musste.« Sue Monk Kidd, Autorin von »Die Bienenhüterin«
Notio Nova: A New Idea by George P. Sakalosky, Ph.D. Here is a new and unique idea that describes both the driving force behind cancer and its potential cure. In this book, quantum concept and model developed by the author will take you into a territory completely off the commonly accepted research track for understanding carcinogenesis. Notio Nova rejects the common view that mutations in DNA produce both a cancer genome and a potential cure; instead, it suggests that the development of the cancer genome begins in DNA with the production of a chemical bond lesion-an ozonide-located inside a promoter TATA box in the Replication Origin of the Genome. The lesion locks the TATA box switch ON and causes the well known unregulated replication of the cancer genome that sustains itself via various mutations. This is the conclusion of a fifty-two year study using a new technique in molecular modeling which brought forth the design, synthesis, and successful testing of three lesion-destroying, anticancer analogue compounds. The conclusion of this new, unique research suggests that the old idea of mutation has failed to produce a cure, so a new idea must come forth and is here presented. About the Author Dr. Sakalosky began molecular modeling in 1957 to devise a means for identifying critical energy absorption sites in macromolecular systems. He was awarded a doctoral degree at Boston College in 1975 following the completion of interdisciplinary, intercollegiate, doctoral courses in biochemistry, biophysics, learning theory, and neurochemistry at MIT (was accepted as a student member of the MIT Neuroscience Department); Tufts University School of Medicine; Boston University; and Boston College. These studies concluded with a doctoral thesis, Proton Symmetry: Its Implications for learning Theory-A Biophysics Concept. Dr. Sakalosky joined the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (USAEC) in 1963 as a member of the Division of Reactor Development and later served as a member of the office of the Chairman of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. The chemical structures in the text are illustrated by Valerie L. Pense and Simeon C. Daugherty.
