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.
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«

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.

Harnessing the Power of Thought to Consciously Create Your Life
Author: Kenneth James Michael MacLean
Publisher: Loving Healing Press
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
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.
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.
Ivanna Spencers book is an extraordinary account of the authors spiritual journey and the teaching she received from high-multidimensional beings during meditation and channelling. The book explains how we can all connect with the divine Source, its Angels, the teachers and the knowledge of the universe which is embedded in us. 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.
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.
Who knew that doomsday would be so hot? Environmental disasters, Ebola outbreaks, the popularity of reality television, and strife in the Middle East, may all be signs that time has come today. Weak and ailing after the end of the Cold War and the financial spree of the nineties, the timeless notion that the end is near is once again exerting a powerful influence on pop culture, politics, religion, and Mel Gibson. Omens and prophecies, asteroids collisions and nuclear war, oil crises and global warming, fire or ice, bang or whimper, asteroid or alien, act of God or human folly, Armageddon Now: The End of the World A to Z is all over doomsday prophecies. From alpha to omega, it is packed with 200 entries and 100 illustrations. Satan, saints, survivalists, and evangelical preachers known for their views on Biblical prophecies receive their due. In the end, the end has never been so thoroughly covered as in Armageddon Now. It's the last word for the end user. So, don't be left behind. Save yourself by buying this book.
Because there are codes, intellectuals and artists from all parts of the world have been in conflict from time immemorial till today. They ponder on how to answer questions spurred by the progressing tendencies toward the emancipation of humans from frailties, and mysteries that remain unresolved till today. Some predict a less conflicting future, the Anti-Christ, others fear the loss of the cultural diversity of humanity, and some express bias toward secularity and religion. Eventually, at the point where major ideological conflicts gave rise to todays controversies, a new fire of ideology flared up in Dotman, and he shares with us here where one would not have expected, at border lines not only between every single human today, but where the religions foundations of cultures are considered. In the midst of beliefs, labeled esoteric, beyond ones own cultural world, home, knowledge, and ingenuity, he found a powerful incident knowledge that is so anomalous and converging and so inspiring, more than any right from time he has so far lived in the world. This zero is structured to use the works of the geniuses, but care was taken in the design of the zero so that codes were identified and decoded with tools created in the zero.
