內容簡介 A modern classic, Einstein’s Dreams is a fictional collage of stories dreamed by Albert Einstein in 1905, about time, relativity and physics. As the defiant but sensitive young genius is creating his theory of relativity, a new conception of time, he imagines many possible worlds. In one, time is circular, so that people are fated to repeat triumphs and failures over and over. In another, there is a place where time stands still, visited by lovers and parents clinging to their children. In another, time is a nightingale, sometimes trapped by a bell jar.Now translated into thirty languages, Einstein’s Dreams has inspired playwrights, dancers, musicians, and painters all over the world. In poetic vignettes, it explores the connections between science and art, the process of creativity, and ultimately the fragility of human existence.


各界推薦 書中的故事開始於一九○五年,此時愛因斯坦即將發表相對論。那時愛因斯坦二十六歲,他也只是瑞士專利局的技師。 作者Alan Lightman臆測是何種靈感,讓愛因斯坦提出相對論,改變了當時世人的時空觀念?書中描寫的就是臆測愛因斯坦在這段時間裡所做的「夢」。 這個「夢」是三十篇有關於時間的故事,不同的時間,不同的時空,流動著不同的人生故事。有時是用雕刻的藝術,把時間凝成永恒的石像。有時用圖畫的藝術,把時間繪為繽紛的落英。有時用音樂的藝術,把時間譜為一曲悠揚的歌,唱來哀樂卻不由自主。有時用燈罩上的蟲蟻來寫輪迴上的時間,爬了半天,回到原位;有時用河流中的聚葉,來寫淤塞的時間,漩於角落,再出不來。時間如叢立的鏡面,影像複製成千,重映成萬;時間如枝頭的小鳥,人們想捉而捉不到,但捉到時鳥卻立即死亡。 作者Alan Lightman,任教於麻省理工學院,本身是物理教授,也從事科學研究與寫作教授。不過在本書中,他卻能以文學的優美筆觸寫下這一段又一段故事。


作者介紹 ALAN LIGHTMAN is the author of six novels, including Einstein’s Dreams, which was an international bestseller, and The Diagnosis, which was a finalist for the National Book Award. He is also the author of three collections of essays and several books on science. His work has appeared in The Atlantic, Granta, Harper’s, The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, and Nature, among other publications. Since beginning his career as a theoretical physicist, Lightman has taught at Harvard and at MIT, where he was the first person to receive a dual faculty appointment in science and in the humanities. He lives in the Boston area.
