By Jacob Bekenstein,Raphael Mechoulam

This quantity involves a range of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures awarded each year on the Israel Academy of Sciences and arts. introduced via eminent scientists and students, together with Nobel laureates, they conceal a extensive spectrum of topics in physics, chemistry, lifestyles technological know-how, arithmetic, historiography and social issues.

This exceptional memorial lecture sequence was once inaugurated through the Israel Academy of Sciences and arts following a global symposium held in Jerusalem in March 1979 to commemorate the centenary of Albert Einstein's delivery. since Einstein's pursuits, actions and impression weren't limited to theoretical physics yet spanned large 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.
