By Jacob Bekenstein,Raphael Mechoulam

This quantity comprises a variety of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures offered every year on the Israel Academy of Sciences and arts. added by means of eminent scientists and students, together with Nobel laureates, they hide a huge spectrum of topics in physics, chemistry, existence technology, arithmetic, historiography and social issues.

This uncommon memorial lecture sequence used to be inaugurated through the Israel Academy of Sciences and arts following a world symposium held in Jerusalem in March 1979 to commemorate the centenary of Albert Einstein's start. considering Einstein's pursuits, actions and effect weren't constrained to theoretical physics yet spanned vast fields affecting society and the welfare of humankind, it used to be felt that those memorial lectures might be addressed to scientists, students and erudite laypersons instead of to physicists alone.
