Wissenschaft am Abgrund: AE als oeffentliche Person ab 1919
Famous people have certain influence. Albert Einstein also has this experience. He notices that many people listen to what he is saying. He takes advantage of this by talking about issues that have nothing to do with his field of physics. Einstein talks about politics, human rights and other subjects that are important to him.
Einstein also discovers that being famous also has disadvantages. You never get any peace and quiet! For this reason, Einstein doesn't have a telephone in his summer house. Nobody can pester him here. Anybody who wants to contact him must call his neighbours!
