Lake Land College hosts Illinois Humanities Council Road Scholar, exploring Albert Einstein

April 10, 2014
 
Lake Land College will host an Illinois Humanities Council Road Scholar, Pangratios Papacosta, on Friday May 2, from 12:30 – 2 p.m. in Webb Hall, room 081 on the Lake Land College campus.  This event is free to the public and is made possible in part by an award from the Illinois Humanities Council.  
 
Einstein was called the “Father of the Atomic Age” and his work unveiled a universe with black holes, dark matter and dark energy, yet most people know little of Einstein’s views on religion or his disdain of materialism, racism, militarism and nationalism.  Understanding human suffering, developing aesthetic appreciation, and studying the humanities were all crucial elements in Einstein’s ideal education. He spoke passionately for a just society and one united human family, rising above prejudices and hatred, despite the persecutions and setbacks that he faced in his own personal life. Consequently, these deeply held beliefs often conflicted with the science he was pioneering.
 
Though a devout pacifist, it was his recommendation to the Roosevelt Administration that propelled the Manhattan Project which led to the Atom bomb. A man of many contradictions, the lesser-known side of Einstein is perhaps the more compelling one. 
 
At this program participants will learn more about Einstein’s personality and inner turmoil as he grew into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
