Albert Einstein is one of the most well-known persons in history. Yet his contributions and personal history remain a mystery to most people. This course will explore Einstein's scientific contributions and highlight key features of his life, including his belief in a God who "doesn't play dice." The instructor designed this course for the non-science person; a background in science or mathematics is not necessary.
