Autobiographical notes

Albert Einstein (Author), Paul Arthur Schilpp (Editor, Translator)
Written with clarity, humanity, and grace, this essay is the only autobiography that Einstein has left to us. Not so much a memoir as an account of his intellectual development, it moves from his youthful interest in geometry to the influence of the work of such fellow scientists as Maxwell, Mach, and Bohr on the growth of his own theories. First published as an element of the Library of Living Philosophers volume, Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist, the essay is here presented in both the original German and a revised English translation to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of Einstein's birth
