Einstein: Relatively Speaking, a Complicated Life : NPR

Biographer Walter Isaacson has turned his attention to the 20th century’s scientific poster boy, whose family life was as difficult as his career was distinguished. Isaacson’s book Einstein: His Life and Universe draws on newly released personal correspondence to create a portrait of the private as well as the public Albert Einstein.

We’ll hear from leading scientists and religious scholars, including Richard Dawkins, Steven Weinberg and Elaine Pagels, as well as Einstein biographer Walter Isaacson.

    Steve Paulson speaks with Richard Dawkins, Elaine Pagels, and Einstein biographer Walter Isaacson. David Lindorff wrote about two physicists’ interest in mysticism and alchemy. David Leavitt tells the story of mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. Father Thomas Keating talks about God and the contemplative life.
