US Scientist Leonard Mlodinow Visits Bratislava

LEONARD MLODINOW is a physicist, and the author of several books including The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives and Feynman’s Rainbow: A Search for Beauty in Physics and in Life. He’s also written for television, including “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

A good friend of mine sent me a link to the article in Nautilus, written by Leonard Mlodinow. The title of the article is The loneliest genius. Read it here (with additional illustration of my choice) or follow the link to the Nautilus original. It’s about genius. And ideas. It’s about loneliness and belonging. It’s about Isaac Newton.

Isaac Newton spurned social contact—but his greatest work borrowed from the ideas of others.
