內容簡介

這本書不僅是重要的歷史文獻,紀念愛因斯坦100周年的最新版本,印刷與編排經美,更能吸引想了解愛因斯坦思想的年輕讀者。

這個簡潔優美的相對論蘊藏了太多令人驚訝的內容,從哲學與科學角度來深入了解相對論,是有史以來最能明晰解釋相對論的經典著作,在20世紀20年代初,就被翻譯成十多種語言和15種版本。

這個紀念相對論100年的新版本,經由Hanoch Gutfreund與Jürgen Renn 兩位作者閱讀解釋,考察愛因斯坦的思想演變,並從早期版本中,找到愛因斯坦與Walther Rathenau 的往來書信,書信中對本書進行多方討論,澄清與補充許多關鍵點,同時,增加愛因斯坦的手稿,融合知識、歷史、紀念,是一本很珍貴的相對論版本。

After completing the final version of his general theory of relativity in November 1915, Albert Einstein wrote a book about relativity for a popular audience. His intention was "to give an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics." The book remains one of the most lucid explanations of the special and general theories ever written. In the early 1920s alone, it was translated into ten languages, and fifteen editions in the original German appeared over the course of Einstein's lifetime.

This new edition of Einstein's celebrated book features an authoritative English translation of the text along with an introduction and a reading companion by Hanoch Gutfreund and Jürgen Renn that examines the evolution of Einstein's thinking and casts his ideas in a broader present-day context. A special chapter explores the history of and the stories behind the early foreign-language editions in light of the reception of relativity in different countries. This edition also includes a survey of the introductions from those editions, covers from selected early editions, a letter from Walther Rathenau to Einstein discussing the book, and a revealing sample from Einstein's handwritten manuscript.

Published on the hundredth anniversary of general relativity, this handsome edition of Einstein's famous book places the work in historical and intellectual context while providing invaluable insight into one of the greatest scientific minds of all time.
