Understanding Einstein The Philosopher


For many, the name of Albert Einstein is synonymous with the word genius. His life is as fascinating as his work and discovery. To investigate some of his life’s work, New Acropolis main centre at Colaba hosted a talk titled Einstein – A life of wonder on 8 April 2017. The lecture explored Einstein’s works as an investigation of truth through science. The talk proposed, how a scientific attitude and outlook makes humans, human and how investigating truth for ourselves is perhaps the purpose of life. In Einsteins own words “ the most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious” .

Through this lecture it was explained how by maintaining the sense of wonder one can perhaps try to experience some aspect of the mystery.
