About the book:

Though they met just once, and even then didnt know what to make of each others work, Einstein and Freud had more in common than they might have imagined. Each ran out of evidence using the traditional scientific methods that had worked well since the dawn of the scientific revolution and each adopted new scientific methods that opened up unprecedented intellectual landscapesrelativity in Einsteins case, the unconscious in Freuds. In this brilliant, elegant book, renowned science writer Richard Panek traces the creation of two new sciencescosmology and psychoanalysisthat have allowed us for more than a hundred years to explore previously unimaginable universes without and within.

Like a nonfiction version of Einsteins Dreams, Paneks The Invisible Century is a story of a revolution in thought that altered not only what or how much we see, but also the very nature of seeing.
