Célebre por su teoría de la relatividad, que cambió para siempre la ciencia moderna, Einstein fue además un gran humanista: observó con lucidez la sociedad y defendió la convivencia pacífica entre los pueblos, la libertad y un progreso que el Estado no utilizara en contra de los individuos. En esta obra recoge sus reflexiones sobre su vida y la época en que le tocó vivir, ...more

The student begins to explain.

'You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold'. We can hit down to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a b

Este libro puede dividirse en dos partes. La mitad en la que Einstein expone su punto de vista sobre la sociedad, economía, religión, filosofía, sus motivaciones, ciencia, su rechazo a las guerras, y sobre el judaísmo. Esta mitad es de lectura fácil, Einstein se expresa con una facilidad hermosa. Sus sentencias son sencillas y clarísimas, su lectura hace tan agradable. No deja de asombrarme cómo consigue expresar grandes ideas de forma tan sencilla. Durante esta mitad podemos entender parte de s ...more

This is a miscellaneous collection of Einstein's thoughts about life and religion, and war and peace. In this book,an interesting picture of Einstein, as man, emerges.

Einstein sees reason manifesting itself in nature and that an appreciation of this reality is to experience the mysterious. It is this experience that "stands at the cradle of true art and true science" he writes. While this, along with fear, gave rise to religion, Einstein's religious attitude is all about mystery and not, as he w

ok, don't laugh, but I've been trying to formulate my own "personal statement" these last months. You know, what I believe, what I value, what I aspire to... that kind of thing. "The World As I See It" is exactly what I'd like to write for myself, for those I love. Of course, it would help if I were Albert Einstein... I certainly don't expect to publish mine. But I want to take the time to think through and articulate "the world as I see it." Einstein is a good man-- yeah, he's pretty smart, I g ...more

Mình cứ nghĩ Einstein suốt ngày nghiên cứu này nọ chứ! Ai dè ông cũng là con người nhân văn, cũng rất có trách nhiệm với cộng đồng xã hội, viết báo bày tỏ quan điểm về các vấn đề xã hội, phê phán cái sai, cổ vũ cái tốt, viết thư an ủi động viên người quen cũng như người không quen biết.
Và cuối cùng tuy ông là một nhà khoa học lớn nhưng ông cũng có tinh thần tôn giáo cao và đặc biệt mang trong mình tình yêu tự do hòa bình.

Đọc cuốn sách, thấy được một số quan điểm của Einstein về cuộc đời, ông là một người yêu chuộng hoà bình, ghét chiến tranh, thích cuộc sống bình dị, ghét vật chất cũng như danh tiếng, ghét cuộc sống đua tranh vụ lợi mà chỉ muốn cống hiến hết mình.
Đọc xong thấy mình cũng có nhiều đức tính giống Einstein có điều không có được bộ óc như ông thôi mà :'(

We exist for our fellow man... Our actions and desires are bound up with the existence of other human beings - "We eat food that others have grown, wear clothes that others have made, live in houses that others have built. The greater part of our knowledge and beliefs has been communicated to us by other people through the medium of a language which others have created."

First, I can say that Einstein was a man of ideals and conviction; nevertheless, his opinions and his views are not to be spared from criticism. I respect Einstein as far as his contributions to science are concerned; but with regards to some of his views political, gender-wise and economic matters stated on this book, I disagree. Initially, his optimistic attitude towards humanity and the individual, the mystery and corresponding beauty of nature and the universe, and spirituality are admirable ...more

مجموعة مقالات ورسائل جُمعت في هذا الكتاب، تتحدث عن الدين والسياسة والمجتمع بطريقة فلسفية، لم أفهم بعض المواضيع كونها أحداث وقعت في بدايات القرن العشرين في ألمانيا ودول أوروبا.

عبّر آينشتاين عن فخره كونه يهوديا بقوله - بترجمتي:
السعي وراء العلم من أجل العلم، وحبُّ العدالة، والرغبة في الإستقلال من سِمات اليهود المُميّزة والتي تجعلني أفتخر بأني يهودي.

ما شدّني في هذا الكتاب، حديث آينشتاين عن اليهود والعرب وخاصة عن موضوع إنشاء دولة إسرائيل. من المعروف أن حكومة إسرائيل قد عرضت على آينشتاين منصب رئيس وزر

The other day I read an article titled We Believe in Experts Because They Agree with Us.

That might be why I like Einstein and subsequently this book. What I knew of the man behind that iconic frizzy haired picture prior to reading this came from scattered quotes of his I read somewhere or heard from friends. There was eccentricity that drew me in first and then the refreshingly grounded feel one sensed about him that spurred on my fascination about this scientist.

هذا الكتاب عبارة عن مجموعة قصاصات منتقاة بعناية من مقالات ، وخطب ورسائل وتصريحات ل-ألبرت آينشتاين في مناسبات مختلفة- الغرض منها إلقاء الضوء على شخصيته الإنسانية الفكرية و معتقداته وآرائه تجاه العالم، الحياة، الإنسان، الدين،السياسة، الحرب والعلم وغيره.

بعيداً عن نظريته النسبية وقانون الجاذبية، يبدو أينشتاين إنسان مبحر في العمق الإنساني، وهو قارئ نفسي رائع. ولديه آراء ونظرة مثيرة حول الدين/ الإله. ك - مفهوم

این سبک نوشته را بسیاری از دانشمندان نمیپسندند و مسائل جنبی فلسفی را در حوزه ی کاری خود نمیدانند چون نتیجهگیری کلی در مورد روح و خداوند و جهان هستى با استفاده از نتایج علمی به هیچ وجه از روش علمی صورت نمیگیرد و صرفاً فلسفهبافیهای خود نویسنده است و اصولاً روش علم تجربی تا به امروز برای بحث علمی در مورد این مسائل، اطلاعات کافی در اختیار ندارد و حتی ممکن است با این روش هیچگاه امکان بحث در مورد چنین مسائلی را پیدا نکند تا جاییکه بسیاری از دانشمندان از این مباحث و سوالات طفره رفته و آن را در حیطه کار
By this collection of essays, letters and articles Albert Einstein sought in 1934 introduced himself to the world beyond academia and the headlines. Though he was then fifty years old, the Einstein we find here brims with youthful hope and enthusiasm. Of Jewish linage, he was an agnostic, socialist pacifist (those labels seem inadequate).

Of particular interest to readers today is how some of his ideals seem current while others are so out-of-date as to seem quaint. “The man who regards his own

This abridged edition of letters, speeches and thoughts aims to paint a picture of Einstein as a humanistic and political commentator, philosopher and activist.

I felt that the extracts should have been dated; I find the de-contextualisation very annoying and patronising. I was surprised by Einstein's conservatism on issues of education, culture and sexism, matching his scientific conservatism. He is particularly luminous and impressive in his addresses to and about Jews and Jewishness, and the v

Bilim, felsefe, din ve politikaya dair görüşlerini yansıtan konuşmaları ve mektuplarını içeren kitap asağıda paylaştığım pasajlar ve benzeri tesbitleri ile yaşadığı döneme göre cesur ve farklı duruşunu kayıt altına alıyor.

Kitaba dair tek olumsuz yorum; Einstein'ın kitabın başlarındaki din konusunda belirttiği düşüncelerinin tersine yahudilik dini ve siyonizmi yücelten yazıları ile kitabın son bulmasıdır.

Everyone sees the world from his own perspective. Maybe the way that I perceive the world is somehow different from other people.
When it comes to describe our ways of seeing the world, we think about many concepts that determine how we really perceive it. Happiness is the objective that many people want to fulfill. However, they forget that to be happy is linked not only with making a big fortune, but happiness is when you see your parents ‘smile. This means the world for me. I will not be joyfu

The book started very good and the articles were organised fairly good at only the first 50 pages. Later he started writing about Jew and their rights, Which I strongly disagree with him at this point specially in their right in Palestine "the Jew have no right in a nanometer of a land in this pure land". Clearly Einstein ignored the existence of two very important religion Islam and Christianity and he always refer to Judaism only.

The preface provides scattered contexts for the essays to follow, but that was no way to inform the reader. By the time I reached the end of the book, I forgot all the information that was condensed in the preface.

The book should have organized essays/letters by theme in a chronological fashion, and offered an introduction for each one of them.
Some letters could easily be disregarded. For instance, I don't see any interest in reading the exchange that took place between Einstein and the Academy.

Albert Einstein è uno degli scienziati più famosi del '900 e più citato anche grazie alla memorabile foto della sua linguaccia. Personalmente lo associavo alla teoria della relatività e non sapevo del suo impegno per promuovere la pace tra le nazioni mondiali. Il volumetto è molto bello perché svela il lato -sorprendentemente - umano dello scienziato. Infatti dal libro emergono riflessioni sulla politica, sul dialogo tra le persone, sul ruolo degli intellettuali nel mondo moderno, sulla deriva n ...more

هنا تقريبا الجانب الإنساني المتأمل لآينشتاين، آراؤه -المتكررة- بشأن عالمية العلم، خطورة التجنيد الإجباري، ضرورة نزع السلاح، إلغاء الحروب تماما، إنشاء رابطة أو جمعية سيادتها فوق سيادة الدول من أجل أن تلتزم الدول بقرارات هذه الجمعية وغيرها.

The book repeats itself all the time. It's a collection of essays, letters and speeches, and was no supposed to be a book from the beginning. Because of that, it doesn't work well as a book, and most of the essays say something that a previous one has said. The chapter about pacifism is utterly redundant, because he keeps showing his solution to war all the time.

A nice book, tells us that one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century was a humanist, a pacifist, and his views about his scien

Albert Einstein will always be remembered as a preeminent scientific legend of our time. But not too many people think of him as an ardent humanist as well. In this book Einstein delves into many touchy subjects, including good and evil, religion and science, Pacifism, war, and other issues facing humaity of his time. The only downside of this book is a missing part that dwells on his personal life, I would prefered reading a full portrait of this mental marvel !
Larry Bassett
What did Albert Einstein think about religion, war and the military, and Zionism? Although Einstein was not religious he was very committed to Jewishness as a culture. He was clearly antiwar and opposed to any standing armies. I thought the book would've been much more interesting if his writings would've been more clearly placed in their historic context and at least consistently dated.

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

“I do not at all believe in human freedom in the philosophical sense... Schopenhauer’s saying, ‘A man can do what he wants, but not will what he wants,’ has been a very real inspiration to me since my youth; it has been a continual consolation in the face of life’s hardships, my own and others’, and an unfailing wellspring of tolerance. This realization mercifully mitigates the easily paralyzing sense of responsibility and prevents us from taking ourselves and other people too seriously; it is conducive to a view of life which, in part, gives humour its due.” 94 likes
