He not only achieved a cure of the patient and a solution of the problem, but a revolutionary reorganization of our fundametal principles of physics. I t was clear to Einstein that the theory of Lorentz and the principle of relativity were necessarily compatible. Since it was impossible to doubt the truth of both principles, the apparent incompatibility, as indicated by the negative result of Michelson’s experiment, must be due to the traditional conception of time and space. At first, Einstein thought it possible to eliminate completely the hypothetical lightether, which was the real disturbing element.

A discussion of his scientific work is, therefore, not a part of the task at hand, especially since it is rendered unnecessary by the vast literature already existing on the subject. But the work of a creative personality is bound up with its life in many ways. The work develops as an essentiaf constituent of the life of the creator and is its crowning achievement. In the case of a person like Albert Einstein, who feels the most abstract problems of his science with an overwhelming force, and is too much the universal man not to relate his scientific production to the rich world of his profoundest human experiences, a biography which does not discuss his work remains fragmentary.

In the year 1901 he obtained, quite by chance, a substitute position a t the Technical school in Wintherthur.
