"Einstein and Oppenheimer: Intersections"
by S i l v a n S. S c h w e b e r
(Professor of Physics and Richard Koret Professor in the History of
Ideas, Brandeis University)
The interactions between Einstein and Oppenheimer will be presented.
After Einstein's death Oppenheimer was at times highly critical of
Einstein in public. Their contrasting views regarding creativity,
physics, philosophy, politics, nationalism, and their Jewishness will be
analyzed to understand Oppenheimer's stance.
