Abstract

Every modern century has its paragons, its culture-heroes, who fill the place once taken by saints and messiahs. For the first half of the twentieth century, outside the totalitarian states, the most celebrated paragons have been Gandhi, Schweitzer, and Einstein; and of these the most influential as a thinker was clearly Albert Einstein.
