From the original Publisher's Note:

"The layperson does not often have the opportunity of reading a simple exposition of advanced sientific thought written by the one who did the actual creative thinking. In this book, which is the result of a happy collaboration between the author of the theory of relativity, Albert Einstein, and one of his co-workers in research, Leopold

I really enjoyed the explanations given in this book. The author is Einstien but the writing is Infeld. He worked very closely with Einstien.

They begin with basic mechanics and work their way through field physics, special and general relativity and then finally to quantum mechanics. All of this is done without mathematic equations. It is all explained through analogies, theories and explanation or real world experiments.

It is a very interesting read if for no other reason than to see the devel

This book is so polite! Written in 1938, apparently more by Infeld than by Einstein, it is exceedingly proper and therefore delightful, as well as thorough. It is a beautiful book, very clear and precise, and should be read by all armchair physicists with a serious hankering to understand relativity theory, as well as the importance of the quantum theory.

نحن لا نستطيع أن نبنى علما دون أن نعتقد بإمكانية إدراك الحقيقة من خلال منشآتنا النظرية ودون أن نوقن بوجود تناغم داخلى في العالم الذي نرصده. إن هذا الإيمان كان وسيظل الباعث الرئيسى لكل إبداع علمي. فمن خلال كل مجهوداتنا، نلمح الطموح إلى الفهم والايمان الراسخ بتناغم عناصر الوجود ، ذلك الايمان الصامد أمام كل العقبات التى تحول دون إدراك الحقيقة.

Einstein has a reputation not only as a physicist, but as a humanitarian. The clarity and style of this book reinforces the reputation.

Slowly, carefully and with great concern that the reader not be left behind, Einstein and his co-author tell what could be a bewildering tale by demonstrating how the science of the physical relationship of things evolved.

It did so for the reason that all science evolves: questions, in being answered, pose further questions. The pursuit of the unknown, with the n

هذا الكتاب رغم قدمه ولكني استمتعت كثيرا بقراءته واستفدت أكثر ، أنا لا أعلم مدى مشاركة تلميذ أينشتاين في الكتابة ولكني أستطيع ان أرى أسلوب أينشتاين في الشرح وإيصال الفكرة بكل موضوعية ، فقد بدأ بشرح تطور علوم الطبيعة منذ جاليليو وحتى ميكانيكا الكم وبداياتها على عهده ، وقد فعل ذلك بكل حياد وموضوعية دون أن يحتقر أو يتجاهل قوانين نيوتن والمياكنيكا الكلاسيكية بشكل عام ، بل أكد على أهميتها وعلى أن النسبية سواء العامة أو الخاصة ماهي إلا تعميم للميكانيكا الكلاسيكية ورؤية أفضل لعلوم الطبيعة ، وأسلوبه في إ ...more

Interesting book. Most of it was written by Leopold Infeld who was a colleague of Einstein and a fellow refugee from Europe. Infeld could not get a permanent appointment at Princeton due to a bitter rivalry within the Physics department so he came up with the idea of writing a popular, non mathematical monograph explaining the history of physics. Einstein readily agreed and this allowed Infeld to obtain a secure source of funding. Einstein's name appears first only because his was the better kno ...more

This book offers two things:
1. A summary of physics, from classical mechanics, to field theory, general relativity and quantum theory (as it was understood in 1938 when the book was first published). The presentation is oriented towards laymen and avoids using any mathematical formulas. The explanations of the basic ideas of physics are marvelously clear and straightforward. However, the self-imposed strict avoidance of math, although probably appealing to the wide audience, sometimes resulted i

Absolutely awesome! In my mind, this book is more about psychology or cognition rather than physics. I love books whose plots are connected by logic rather than irrelevant story telling.
More precisely, this book is about how human "create" knowledge and the nature of reality. There is in fact no force, no field, no charge. All we have is motion, along with, at best, the tendency of motion. The "scientific" concepts are artificially created to, and only to, classify unrelated events that only ma

تاریخ علم فیزیک از زبان اینشتین شنیدن دارد. این کتاب به ما میآموزد که مفاهیم علمی به چه شکلی در مواجههی ما با طبیعت و برای فهم بهتر آن تولید میشوند و رشد میکنند. ضمنا نظریات فیزیکی در همین دویست سیصد سال اخیر چقدر عوض شدهاند و در یک روند رشدی چقدر از مفاهیم و نظریات به کناری ریخته شدهاند.
این کتاب برای آشنایی مفهومی و فارغ از ریاضی با نظریات فیزیکی از زمان نیوتن تا زمان خود اینشتین هم خوب است.
نکتهی جالب این که حتی یک نام هم از اینشتین در این تاریخ نویسی نیامده در صورتی که میدانیم اینشتین در همهی

An accessible, straightforward journey through the rise and fall of various theories at the heart of physics, from Newton's time to the early 20th century era of Einstein and Infeld. Although "rise and fall" is not quite accurate; the authors stress that new theories tend to broaden the scope of the old theories rather than upending them entirely. Thus, for example, today we freely make use of Newtonian mechanics when dealing with non-relativistic speeds, or use Maxwell's equations when the elec ...more

I first picked this book up thinking that it would provide a broad overview of the entire history of Physics. I really wanted Einstein's take on Aristotle, Lucretius and maybe even the pre-Socratics in a sweeping history of scientific thought. On this account, I was sorely disappointed. Einstein summarily dismisses all physics prior to Galileo, and I almost summarily dismissed the book as a result. It sat on my shelf for about two years until I recently picked it up thinking I needed a new way o ...more

This book is a pretty good explanation of the history of physics, from Galileo to quantum theory. It is set out in a fairly comprehensible manner, and there are a lot of analogies used. This isn't going to help you much with exams but it's a great way to get your head round the overall structure of physics.

باختصار: إذا أردت فهم مضمون النظرية النسبية فعليك بهذا الكتاب.
Austin Wright-pettibone
Great complement to introductory physics courses, or to non-scientists interested in learning about the psychology of physics. In traditional Einstein fashion, the explanations are clear, guiding, and informative: the authors make sure never to leave their reader behind, carefully building explanations in order to bring popular audiences along. I've recommended this book to many a friend looking to understand the motivation behind early physical research.

الكتاب قصير، مختصر، سهل القراءة، ويشرح الأفكار بشكل مبسط جدًا بدون أي تطرّق للجانب الرياضي من النظريات رغم أني أظن إن الجانب الرياضي يُسهِم في تعميق الفهم وتوضيح الفكرة. المزعج فيه إن المصطلحات الواردة هي مصطلحات قديمة، فيضيع الوقت في محاولة الربط بين المصطلح الوارد في الكتاب وذاك الذي أعرفه رغم أن الفكرة واحدة طبعًا.
أعجبتني ثقة الكاتبين في قدرة العلم على إيجاد تفسير كامل وبسيط للعالم؛ قلما تجد هذا في مؤلفات حديثة. كما أن غلاف النسخة العربية ظريف :].

Really interesting to read this book 50 years (+) after it was first written. A simple introduction to the move from classical to modern physics. This will help fill in some of the gaps for those who are challenged by understanding the differences.

This book did a good job of explaining modern physics and how it evolved on a conceptual basis. No heavy math to cause sleepless nights or frustration. Just the authors presenting thought experiments and analogous to explain how we got where we are in physics and where we might go next.

يهتم الكتاب بتسلسل الأفكار أكثر من الأفكار ذاتها، ويهمل كلياً الجانب الرياضي

A novice or a layman would marvel the book for its simplicity in the presentation of the complicated physical phenomenon. This book is definitely a masterpiece for a beginner who is learning physics. As Einstein himself followed the science of deduction so has he approaced the same in the presentation of the physical facts in this book. You will see a glimpse of it as you read through this book. The book would turn out to be not so gripping if you're already familiar with some of the physical fa ...more

الكتاب رائع وانصح به لكل المهتمين بنظرية المعرفة - الابستمولوجيا

الكتاب اجمالاً يتكلم عن تطور/ثورات الأفكار في الفيزياء كما يتضح من عنوان الكتاب بدئا من افكار نيوتن وجاليليو الثورية - بناءاً على وقتها - الي ان تطورت النظريات لتهدم كل واحدة الأخرى الي وصول اخر النظريات ثورية في هذا الوقت - الذي طبع فيه الكتاب - ميكانيكا الكوانتم

الكتاب لا يناقش النظريات العلمية نفسها ،، ولكن اسباب وكيفية ظهورها ،، ولذلك الكتاب لن يضيف معرفياً للمهندسين والفيزيائين ولكن سيضيف لديهم ترابط الأفكار وتطورها

Is reality real? Sounds funny but think about it, is reality real? My reality is not your reality is not Joe Shmoe's reality so how do we know how to respond to others? Do we go along with the median or general societal norms or do we dare diverge and suffer the consequenses of such? I believe the study of motion will better help to give the illusion of remaining congruent with socioty, while somewhat controling my soroundings, who's force will push society to be congruent with me.

A very interesting reading, especially for those who want to have an overall idea about greatest theories and most essential concepts of physics from classics to field and electromagnetism then relativity and quantum. It shares many moments of why and how, for example why even a relativity theory is needed, how they tried to solve which problems that end up having a new theory which is the most important to know before studying anything, specially natural sciences like PHYSICS.

Muito bom! Tive uma disciplina na Universidade quando cursava Bacharelado em Física na UFMS com um professor sensacional (Alfredo Salvetti!). O livro é excelente e ajuda a abrir a mente e ter um pensamento criativo e crítico!
Para quem reflete sobre como as coisas funcionam, é curioso, e quer ter um pensamento criativo eu recomendo! Olha que já faz quase 20 anos (1996) que li o livro ... e li aversão em portugues. Gostaria muito de tê-lo em casa para reler a vontade.

In 1879, Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of Zurich by 1909. His 1905 paper explaining the photoelectric effect, the basis of electronics, earned him the Nobel Prize in 1921. His first paper on Special Relativity Theory, also published in 1905, changed the world. After the rise of the Nazi party, Einstein made Princeton his permanent home, becoming ...more
