In a book that is both biography and the most exciting form of history, here are eighteen years in the life of a man, Albert Einstein, and a city, Berlin, that were in many ways the defining years of the twentieth century. Einstein in BerlinIn the spring of 1913 two of the giants of modern science traveled to Zurich. Their mission: to offer the most prestigious position in the very center of European scientific life to a man who had just six years before been a mere patent clerk. Albert Einstein accepted, arriving in Berlin in March 1914 to take up his new post. In December 1932 he left Berlin forever. "Take a good look," he said to his wife as they walked away from their house. "You will never see it again."In between, Einstein's Berlin years capture in microcosm the odyssey of the twentieth century. It is a century that opens with extravagant hopes-and climaxes in unparalleled calamity. These are tumultuous times, seen through the life of one man who is at once witness to and architect of his day-and ours. He is present at the events that will shape the journey from the commencement of the Great War to the rumblings of the next one. We begin with the eminent scientist, already widely recognized for his special theory of relativity. His personal life is in turmoil, with his marriage collapsing, an affair under way. Within two years of his arrival in Berlin he makes one of the landmark discoveries of all time: a new theory of gravity-and before long is transformed into the first international pop star of science. He flourishes during a war he hates, and serves as an instrument of reconciliation in the early months of the peace; he becomes first a symbol of the hope of reason, then a focus for the rage and madness of the right. And throughout these years Berlin is an equal character, with its astonishing eruption of revolutionary pathways in art and architecture, in music, theater, and literature. Its wild street life and sexual excesses are notorious. But with th

But with the debacle of the depression and Hitler’s growing power, Berlin will be transformed, until by the end of 1932 it is no longer a safe home for Einstein. Once a hero, now vilified not only as the perpetrator of “Jewish physics” but as the preeminent symbol of all that the Nazis loathe, he knows it is time to leave.

The captivating, all-but-forgotten story of Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and the search for a planet that never existed For more than fifty years, the world’s top scientists searched for the “missing” planet Vulcan, whose existence was mandated by Isaac Newton’s theories of gravity.

The captivating, all-but-forgotten story of Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and the search for a planet that never existed For more than fifty years, the world’s top scientists searched for the “missing” planet Vulcan, whose existence was mandated by Isaac Newton’s theories of gravity. Countless hours were spent on the hunt for the elusive orb, and some of the era’s most skilled astronomers even claimed to have found it. There was just one problem: It was never there. In The Hunt for Vulcan, Thomas Levenson follows the visionary scientists who inhabit the story of the phantom planet, starting with Isaac Newton, who in 1687 provided an explanation for all matter in motion throughout the universe, leading to Urbain-Jean-Joseph Le Verrier, who almost two centuries later built on Newton’s theories and discovered Neptune, becoming the most famous scientist in the world. Le Verrier attempted to surpass that triumph by predicting the existence of yet another planet in our solar system, Vulcan. It took Albert Einstein to discern that the mystery of the missing planet was a problem not of measurements or math but of Newton’s theory of gravity itself. Einstein’s general theory of relativity proved that Vulcan did not and could not exist, and that the search for it had merely been a quirk of operating under the wrong set of assumptions about the universe. Levenson tells the previously untold tale of how the “discovery” of Vulcan in the nineteenth century set the stage for Einstein’s monumental breakthrough, the greatest individual intellectual achievement of the twentieth century. A dramatic human story of an epic quest, The Hunt for Vulcan offers insight into how science really advances (as opposed to the way we’re taught about it in school) and how the best work of the greatest scientists reveals an artist’s sensibility. Opening a new window onto our world, Levenson illuminates some of our most iconic ideas as he recounts one of the strangest episodes in the history of science. Praise for The Hunt for Vulcan “Delightful . . . a charming tale about an all-but-forgotten episode in science history.”—The Wall Street Journal “Engaging . . . At heart, this is a story about how science advances, one insight at a time. But the immediacy, almost romance, of Levenson’s writing makes it almost novelistic.”—The Washington Post“Captures the drama of the tireless search for this celestial object.”—Science “A well-structured, fast-paced example of exemplary science writing.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “A short, beautifully produced book that tells a cautionary tale . . . Levenson is a breezy writer who renders complex ideas in down-to-earth language.”—The Boston Globe“An inspiring tale about the quest for discovery.”—Walter Isaacson “Equal to the best science writing I’ve read anywhere, by any author. Beautifully composed, rich in historical context, deeply researched, it is, above all, great storytelling.”—Alan Lightman, author of The Accidental Universe “Levenson tells us where Vulcan came from, how it vanished, and why its spirit lurks today. Along the way, we learn more than a bit of just how science works—when it succeeds as well as when it fails.”—Neil deGrasse Tyson “Science writing at its best. This book is not just learned, passionate, and witty—it is profoundly wise.”—Junot DíazFrom the Hardcover edition.

Die Kultur der AmbiguitätDie Kultur der Ambiguität
Eine andere Geschichte des IslamGebundenes BuchAlle Kulturen müssen mit Ambiguität leben. Sie unterscheiden sich jedoch dadurch, wie sie damit umgehen. Zweideutigkeit wird hingenommen, ja mitunter wird sie bewußt erzeugt und nimmt wichtige kulturelle Funktionen ein, etwa in Konventionen der Höflichkeit und der Diplomatie, durch Riten oder Kunstwerke. Sie kann aber auch vermieden und bekämpft werden. Kulturen unterscheiden sich also durch ihre unterschiedliche Ambiguitätstoleranz. In islamischen Kulturen ist in dieser Hinsicht während der letzten Jahrhunderte ein Wandel zu beobachten, der sich so deutlich und mit solch drastischen Konsequenzen kaum anderswo zeigt: von einer relativ großen Toleranz hin zu einer bisweilen extremen Intoleranz gegenüber allen Phänomenen von Vieldeutigkeit und Pluralität. Während zum Beispiel im 14. Jahrhundert die Varianten des Korantexts und die Vielzahl an Auslegungsmöglichkeiten als Bereicherung galten, ist dies heute vielen Muslimen ein Ärgernis.Die Erforschung des Umgangs mit kultureller Ambiguität ist ein Gegenstand der Mentalitätsgeschichte. Verläßt man den eurozentrischen Blickwinkel und stellt Denken, Fühlen und Handeln der Menschen in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses, kommt man zu einer alternativen, nicht teleologisch gefärbten Geschichtserzählung. Daher ist auch der Untertitel des Buches - "Eine andere Geschichte des Islams" - mehrdeutig, ambig, zu lesen. Nicht eine andere "Geschichte des Islams" soll erzählt werden, sondern vielmehr eine "andere Geschichte" des Islams, in der aber auch einige scheinbar selbstverständliche Bestandteile der eigenen Kultur in Frage gestellt werden. Diese Sicht macht dieses Buch so interessant und wichtig.

Die frühen Christen: Von den Anfängen bis Konstantin (Historische Bibliothek der Gerda Henkel Stiftung)Die frühen Christen: Von den Anfängen bis…
Von den Anfängen bis KonstantinBuch mit Leinen-EinbandDie frühen Christen bildeten keineswegs eine homogene Gruppe, geschweige denn eine Kirche. Von ihrem Wirken in der Welt, aber auch von den Irritationen, die sie bei Zeitgenossen auslösten, handelt dieses Buch. Es soll zugleich die modernen Leser irritieren: Die antiken Christen sind durch eine lebendige Erinnerung und durch ein gemeinsames textliches Erbe - die Bibel - eng mit der heutigen Welt verbunden, selbst für diejenigen, die dem christlichen Glauben fernstehen. Allenthalben stoßen wir auf Kirchengebäude, christliche Feiertage rhythmisieren unsere Zeit, weite Teile der Kunst sind durch christliche Motive geprägt, selbst noch in der Persiflage. Doch die sichtbare Nähe kann eine scheinbare sein.Vieles an den frühen Christen ist uns fremd und weit entfernt von dem, was heute als Christentum gilt. Dieser doppelten Irritation - aus der Sicht der Heutigen und der antiken Zeitgenossen - geht der Autor des vorliegenden Buches nach und lässt uns die Fremdheit eines nur scheinbar vertrauten Christentums erkennen. Zugleich fragt er danach, wie eine kleine, sozial schwache Gruppe aus der Peripherie sich ausbreiten konnte und welchen Herausforderungen ihre Angehörigen sich gegenübersahen.So legt er auch keine lineare Geschichte vom Urchristentum zur Großkirche vor. Es wird vielmehr deutlich, dass die Geschichte der Christen keiner zwingenden inneren Logik folgt und auch nicht durch höhere Kräfte bestimmt scheint. Stattdessen lassen zahlreiche Beispiele erkennen, wie sich frühe Christen in bestimmten Situationen um Problemlösungen bemühten und unterschiedliche Wege diskutierten - von denen sich manche aber nie durchsetzten. Was wir erkennen, ist mithin auch keine folgerichtige Entwicklung, sondern eine tastende, gleichsam experimentelle Bewegung, die sich oft hinter späteren Dogmen und Konzilsbeschlüssen verbirgt.
