[Homework]2012-04-13 阿尔伯特·爱因斯坦 Einstein—13

They said if we bring Einstein here, people will look at this and say, Berlin is where the action is. It's worth with whatever it takes to get them here.On July 11th, 1913, two men arrived at the Zurich train station, Max Planck and Walther Nernst, a renown German chemist. They are hoping that personal appeal will persuade the rebellion-shunned scientist to return to his German homeland.
Two men, middle-aged guys and dark clothes, got off the train. And they go find Einstein.
They are so different. Max Planck is very proper Prussian, always very well dressed and well groomed, wearing the monocle, talking in very formal tone. And there is Einstein and he's refusing even back then to comb his hair and dressed in, we know, sort of old coats and however he feels like it, already starting not wearing socks.
They make a great offer to him. He will be a professor at the University Berlin. He will be a member of the Prussian Academy. He won't really have to teach classes. He will have all the research help he need(s).
It was Max Planck. It was Nernst. It was the Prussian Academy of Sciences. It was the entire world of physics that had said no bearing down and saying, we want you. Einstein did not answer the offer.
Einstein says why don't you just go to take a trip for the rest of the afternoon up the mountain.
He said I will meet you at the train station when you come back. I will be carrying a bunch of flowers. And if the flowers are red, I'm coming to German. The flowers are white, sorry, no go. Thanks for coming.
I've made the argument that Einstein delayed his answer to this question, in part because he used to want to live with the pleasure of being so deeply sought after.
But it's certainly true that this was not simply a snapped decision.
As it often does when he has difficult problems to solve,, Einstein takes a long walk.
Zurich was comfortable. There was lots to love there, you know, you don't sort of just walk away from there.
His wife really wants to stay in Zurich.
On the other hand, they have offered the greatest job imaginable.
