This year marks the 100th anniversary of Einstein's appearance as a major scientific figure. Einstein went on to a life and career that not only shaped modern science, but also dealt in significant ways with moral issues, religious identity, and questions of pacifism and nationalism, while his work had a direct impact on public policy, philsophy, and the arts. The HWS Day event will look forward and backward, exploring these issues as in Einstein's own time as well as how these issues are playing themselves out today.
Please note that all sessions will be accessible to everyone. This is not a symposium for scientists or other specialists, but a chance for a broad and multidisciplinary intellectual exchange.
