The Theory of Relativity by Albert Einstein, published in 1916, transformed the way man viewed humanity and the natural world. In it the great physicist explains that space, time, and mass are not absolute, but relative to the observer. With absolutely no background in physics and with the aid of Einstein for Dummies I was able to understand about a third of this theory. It was painful. Nevertheless, I am glad I read this primary source and have a greater understanding of modernist thought.
