What Was Einstein Thinking?

Date: September 22, 2014 at 7:30pm

Location: Templeton Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium

Arthur Fine is a philosopher of science widely recognized for pioneering studies of Albert Einstein and original contributions to the foundations of physics. Einstein worried that the new physics was playing a "risky game" with reality. Fine's The Shaky Game uses archival material to explore Einstein's reactions to the quantum theory and his thoughts about a physics that moves beyond it. The Shaky Game then goes on to formulate a program for treating central interpretive problems of science. Called NOA ("Noah") for the Natural Ontological Attitude, the program builds on how science is practiced to achieve a fresh view of the sciences of our times. Fine's extensive writings contribute to the sciences as well as the humanities, helping to bridge the two cultures.
