Named Time magazine's "man of the 20th century," Albert Einstein not only lived during the 20th century but shaped and was shaped by it. Einstein's theories changed the way we view space, time, and motion, but he also played a central role both scientifically and politically in the development of atomic weapons and thereby the Cold War, despite being a pacifist. He wrote prolifically on religion, politics, economics, and philosophy as well as science. This discussion will examine the social, political, and historical context in which Einstein lived and the ways in which he shaped the world we now live in.
