Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein is possibly the most critically acclaimed philosophers of the modern era. His discoveries are hailed among the greatest of all time, many being necessary to human advancement. Einstein has been a prime inspiration to many famous scientists and his work has lasted the test of time. His impact on society has been nearly unmatched, having famous and insightful quotes. Therefore, Albert Einstein is historically significant, because his theories and insight have set the base for nearly all modern philosophy. As a child Einstein was influenced by the simplest of device, or movements. Born in 1879, and raised in Germany during the prime years of German science and philosophy, his father, Hermann Einstein, held a job as a mechanic. Hermann proved to be a prime influence, introducing Albert to devices such as the pocket compass. This made Albert curious about mechanics and inspired him to build mechanical devices. Max Talmud, who was a medical student, showed Albert famous science and philosophy essays. Writings such as “Critique of Pure Reasoning,” and “Elements,” by Euclid taught Einstein deductive reasoning. Einstein soon learned Euclidean Geometry from a separate book. Influences in Einstein’s adult life were just as important. Mileva Maric was Albert’s first wife and is believed to have contributed to his work. Historians found evidence that Maric had done a large portion of the mathematical calculations and his early work. Max Planck developed the quantum theory for which Einstein used to explain the photoelectric effect. Isaac Newton’s laws of motion assisted Albert in many of his theories. Isaac Newton was a pioneer in the studies of evaluating movement which was necessary in Einstein’s theory of relativity. Einstein has written and published work that has been inspirational to many. But none of his work is as famous as the E=mc2 equation. This equation is merely a component...

...Einstein was sharp in mathematic. When he was 15, his family moved to Italy, and from there to Switzerland. There he entered the Zurich University and in 1900 completed his education. He wanted to be a teacher but ultimately became a clerk in the Swiss Patent Office. In 1903 he got married to Mileva Mavec a Yugoslav science student. Einstein, who was used to take his child in a pram for a walk, always carried a note book with him to jot down ideas on the way. He always thought about science,...

The Brain Behind the 20th Century
To be influential is “To have the capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of others.” Albert Einstein ought to be included in the Time’s 100 Most Influential People because of the outstanding formulas of space that he articulated, the inspiration that he produced when he overcame a problematic childhood, and the...

Albert Einstein was born in Wurttemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. His parents were Hermann Einstein and Pauline Einstein. As a child Einstein had problems learning to speak, and his parents never thought he will be successful in school. At the age of 10 he taught himself geometry and had a wide interest in science related topics. As a child he played the violin and he attended a catholic elementary...

...Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein contributed to physical science by discovering the theory of relativity. Albert Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity stemmed from an attempt to bring together the laws of mechanics, with the laws of the electromagnetic field. He dealt with classical problems of statistical mechanics and problems in which they were merged with quantum theory. This led to an explanation of the Brownian movement of molecules. He also...

Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein is undoubtedly one of the greatest minds of our time. His contributions to physics and mathematics are extensive. He was one of science’s first celebrities. Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 at Ulm, in Wurttemberg, Germany (Nobel). His parents, Hermann and Pauline Einstein, were Jewish middle-class Germans, and his uncle was an engineer (Formative). Six weeks after his birth, his family...

...Identify Einstein’s contribution to quantum theory and its relation to black body radiation
Einstein was able to accomplish many things in his era. He was known for his contributions to quantum theory and black body radiation
He was able to develop a quantum description for the photoelectric effect that depend on the extending Planck’s quantisation hypothesis to light
When light of a suitable frequency is exposed on a metal body, electrons are produced from that body.
Einstein was able to...
