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 will study some of the changing ideas within modern physics, ranging from relativity theory and quantum mechanics to solid-state physics, nuclear and elementary particles, and cosmology. These ideas will be situated within shifting institutional, cultural, and political contexts. The overall aim is to understand the changing roles of physics and of physicists over the course of the twentieth century.
