Opis książki

This volume is the first systematic presentation of the work of Albert Einstein, comprising fourteen essays by leading historians and philosophers of science that introduce readers to his work. Following an introduction that places Einstein's work in the context of his life and times, the book opens with essays on the papers of Einstein's 'miracle year', 1905, covering Brownian motion, light quanta, and special relativity, as well as his contributions to early quantum theory and the opposition to his light quantum hypothesis. Further essays relate Einstein's path to the general theory of relativity (1915) and the beginnings of two fields it spawned, relativistic cosmology and gravitational waves. Essays on Einstein's later years examine his unified field theory program and his critique of quantum mechanics. The closing essays explore the relation between Einstein's work and twentieth-century philosophy, as well as his political writings. 'The Companion proves to be a landmark publication.' Isis 'The book is warmly recommended to every philosopher and historian of science, and to working scientists with an interest in Einstein.' Metascience '... this is a very good presentation of Einstein's contributions to science, philosophy and politics. Personal anecdotes are intermixed with his theories, providing a foundation for understanding the factors that affected his work. Although written to be accessible to a wide audience, Einstein's theories require higher-level thinking and reasoning skills if one is to fully understand the principals discussed.' Reference Reviews 'An integrated history and philosophy of science approach, as exemplified in The Cambridge Companion to Einstein, points to a fruitful future for Einstein scholarship, as its subject is well placed to give us a uniquely insightful perspective on the history and philosophy of twentieth-century science.'
