Richard Panek ´ 2 Summary

The Invisible Century Einstein Freud and the Search for Hidden UniversesWhile I was expecting of a straight biography of Freud and Einstein whose lives I know almost nothing about this little volume was packed with analysis of both astro physics and early neurology My science background is dodgy so even Panek s yper simplified explanations were difficult for me to comprehend but I closed the book feeling much knowledgeable about their the book feeling much knowledgeable about their and curious to learn that everything is relative was a very misleading summary of Relativity much to Einstein s chagrin Panek s ultimate conclusion that the 20th Century was invisible because science could form credible theories based on observations undetectable to the Human Eye Was Positively Mind Blowing A Wondrous Angle On eye was positively mind blowing a wondrous angle on we now take for grantedThe book s only failing is that even at 200 pages it s a little long considering the thesis is perfectly defended in the introduction and the final chapter is only a spiralling reiteration of the themes and events we ve already uncovered Still a great book for people who like me don t actually know very much about these founding fathers As a kid who grew up in a very academic very anti Freud The Power of One house it was nice toear that Freud was in fact uite perceptive for The Wolf Gift (The Wolf Gift Chronicles, his day and despite the contributions and discoveries ofis many contemporaries Freud did a great deal of Groundwork For Future Generations for future generations He Who Dares him it s safe to say that psychotherapy would notave existed in its current form As for Einstein The Thing About December his rivals were close but lacked Albert s singular imagination and intellectual flexibility A greatomage to two great figures Brief intellectual istory of the late 19th and 20th centuries Clearly written short illuminating Panek s short and dense and captivating essay is not yet another biography if only combined of Einstein and Freud it s less importantly much Panek introduces the essentia. The Invisible Century is an original look at two of the most important revolutions and revolutionaries of the modern era This dual biography of Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud and their parallel journeys of discovery that altered forever. L elements of both bright minds istories and deeds as integral element of t his fundamental attempt at drawing parallels analogies and complementarities between the two and in so doing shining light on the past century at least from the scientific point of viewThe first common element is that both geniouses started from a sincere positivistic philosophical position and ended largely going beyond that and rightly so They both widely explored the and extended the boundaries of senses and limits of imagination which they proved if still needed to be invaluable and core parts of the scientific enterprise itself While Einstein went to extremes in the range of the electromagnetically visible and kinetically experimentable withis elegant insights into invariances in nature Freud founded the unconscious within everyone and set out to build a science of it with all the still unsettled criticisms related to it starting from Popper s simultaneous praise of Einstein s theory and dismiss of Freud s construction But then Panek reveals a full ost of clear and very relevant details and points of view that show ow both Stand Up and Fight heroes transcended their own way the legacy of the past of their respective fields And for this purposee does not avoid Rich Yet Sharp Digressions yet sharp digressions the past and the future compared to the eroes epoch This may sound
