Title : STS.042J Einstein, Oppenheimer, Feynman: Physics in the 20th Century (MIT)

Title : STS.042J Einstein, Oppenheimer, Feynman: Physics in the 20th Century (MIT)

Description : This class explores the changing roles of physics and physicists during the 20th century. Topics range from relativity theory and quantum mechanics to high-energy physics and cosmology. The course also examines the development of modern physics within shifting institutional, cultural, and political contexts, such as physics in Imperial Britain, Nazi Germany, U.S. efforts during World War II, and physicists' roles during the Cold War.
