Congratulations to Dr. Steven Gimbel on your new book

Over the years, Dr. Gimbel’s wonderful essays have graced the pages of J Bloglandia 1:1 and 2:2, and now, lucky world, he has a whole book on Einstein! Yay!

“Is relativity Jewish? The Nazis denigrated Albert Einstein’s revolutionary theory by calling it “Jewish science,” a charge typical of the ideological excesses of Hitler and his followers. Philosopher of science Steven Gimbel explores the many meanings of this provocative phrase and considers whether there is any sense in which Einstein’s theory of relativity is Jewish.

“Arguing that we must take seriously the possibility that the Nazis were in some measure correct, Gimbel examines Einstein and his work to explore how beliefs, background, and environment may—or may not—have influenced the work of the scientist. You cannot understand Einstein’s science, Gimbel declares, without knowing the history, religion, and philosophy that influenced it.”
Einstein’s Jewish Science, Physics at the Intersection of Politics and Religion, by Steven Gimbel, John Hopkins University Press, ISBN 9781421405544

Thank you to Seth Anderson at B12 Partners Solipsism for the cover images, which are “Rookery” on the front cover and “Before the Rain Blues” on the back. Chicagoans might recognize at least one of these images.

There’s still some room left for blog essays in the first issue. Here’s more information on the whole deal. I won’t be finalizing anything until after April 18, so if you want in, send me your blog essay on or before April 17 on one of these templates:

MS Word or Rich Text Format or Plain Text. Don’t worry about how it looks, I’ll be formatting up a storm in the final document.

But whether your blog essay is in there or not, J Bloglandia 1:1 is going to have a very lovely cover.
