Einstein on Relativity and Ethics
What did Einstein think of those who (mis)applied his theory to ethics?
“Philosophers play with the word like a child with a doll…It does not mean that everything in life is relative.”
Stanford professors Chip and Dan Heath point out in Switch:
“In fact, its actual meaning was essentially the opposite. The theory was designed to explain how the laws of physics are identical in every frame of reference. From Einstein’s view, things’ don’t look unpredictable; they look surprisingly orderly.”
