On the Humanity in Physics

Roberts seems to be suggesting that physics is a realm apart from say, the humanities, where unique cultural perspectives would be more obviously valuable—and in doing so, he gives voice to a widely held misconception about science. Roberts’s error is to treat physics as a discipline that sits outside its own history and the larger culture, when of course it does no such thing. This was not the view of physics that 70-year-old Albert Einstein described as he looked back across his own life experience [From the time he was 12, he wrote, ‘The contemplation of this world beckoned like a liberation.’].
