A decade after arriving in Princeton, Einstein acquired a walking companion, a much younger man who, next to the rumpled Einstein, cut a dapper figure in a white linen suit and matching fedora. The two would talk animatedly in German on their morning amble to the institute and again, later in the day, on their way homeward. The man in the suit may not have been recognized by many townspeople, but Einstein addressed him as a peer, someone who, like him, had single-handedly launched a conceptual revolution. If Einstein had upended our everyday notions about the physical world with his theory of relativity, the younger man, Kurt Gödel, had had a similarly subversive effect on our understanding of the abstract world of mathematics.
If, like me, you
Hi Blogger. I'm trying to put together a list of sites which help people to find a hiking companion; just like this one 'hiking companion'. I thought you might be able to help. Do you know of any other hiking companion related sites? If so, perhaps you could respond to this post and let me know. Many thanks
