Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fifteen months covered in this latest volume are punctuated by the assassination of Einstein's friend, the German foreign minister Walther Rathenau, which leads Einstein to fear for his own safety. He decides to depart Berlin, and briefly contemplates abandoning academic life altogether. In his detailed and poetic travel diary for his trip to the Far East, Palestine, and Spain--published here for the first time--Einstein makes no note of receiving the news that he has won the Nobel Prize in Physics. Among his numerous writings during this period, a paper on the Stern-Gerlach experiment, written with Paul Ehrenfest, shows with uncompromising clarity that the experiment posed a problem that could not be solved by contemporary quantum theory and anticipates, in a sense, what later would become known as the quantum measurement problem.

Synopsis:

A translation of selected non-English texts included in Volume 13 is available in paperback. Since this supplementary paperback includes only select portions of Volume 13, it is not recommended for purchase without the main volume.

Every document in The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein appears in the language in which it was written, and this supplementary paperback volume presents the English translations of select portions of non-English materials in Volume 13. This translation does not include notes or annotation of the documentary volume and is not intended for use without the original language documentary edition which provides the extensive editorial commentary necessary for a full historical and scientific understanding of the documents.
