Einstein: His Science, Philosophy, and Humanity

A Road Scholar Program by Pangratios Papacosta

He was called the father of the Atomic Age and his work transformed 20th Century science and culture. His theories led to technological miracles and they reveal a fascinating universe with black holes, dark matter, and dark energy. Yet most people know little of Einstein’s views on God and religion or his disdain of materialism, racism, militarism, and nationalism. Understanding human suffering, developing aesthetic appreciation, and studying the humanities were all crucial elements of his ideal education. Despite the persecutions and setbacks that Einstein faced in his personal life, he spoke passionately for a just society and one united human family, rising above prejudices and hatred. Join Dr. Papacosta for this revealing and insightful examination of one of the greatest minds of the 20th Century.
