The Genius of Albert Einstein
August 13, 2010 • 9:33AM

Why should we be looking at Einstein at a time of such crisis? This will be the first in a series of study videos on the subject of Albert Einstein's agapic personality and his creativity. We begin with a context of the culture Einstein was born into, followed by an autobiographic sketch of his life and personality. The core of the video is a workshop pedagogical on the Theory of Special Relativity as part of the educational process conducted by our youth leadership, not for the sake of understanding the theory itself, but using Einstein's particular discovery as a case study to demonstrate and walk people through real human thinking, as being something above sense perceptions or opinions. We end with reflecting on the principle of relativity in terms of social relations and individual identities or thought processes, asking the question --how was Einstein able to make his breakthrough?
