The Nazis reviled Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and considered it a danger to the Third Reich. They referred to it as the worst example of “Jewish science” and “scientific dadaism”. Why was Einstein’s work on space and time such a threat to the Nazis? Was there something uniquely Jewish about how Einstein came up with his theory? Tune in tonight for a unique and thought-provoking conversation with STEVEN GIMBEL. He is the Edwin T. and Cynthea Shearer Johnson Professor for Distinguished Teaching in the Humanities and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Gettysburg College.
