Feeling superior to the young academician in age and in numbers, they SELF- SUPPORT 61 enjoyed showing what they felt. Albert’s first practical activity was thus hardly pleasant. He once more perceived how harsh and cruel the world could be to the individual, especially to one as dreamy and unarmed as he. After a short while, however, Albert showed a definite talent for teaching. The students saw how much they could learn from his course and forgot the youth of their teacher. They respected him and no longer interrupted his lessons.

In 1901, Albert had already given the professor an essay on the kinetic theory of gases which had been written during the time of his tutorship a t Schaffhausen. Kleiner had rejected this essay out of consideration to his colIeague Ludwig Boltzmann, whose train of reasoning Einstein had sharply criticized. However, after Einstein had taken his doctor’s 2 ,, 70 ALBERT EINSTEIN degree, Kleiner thought it his duty to both science and humanity to find the young scholar the position which he merited in the scientific world.

Thus 1905 was the beginning of many new investigations in physics and philosophy. The extraordinary significance of the spacetime theory, and the lively discussion which it provoked in all physical and philosophical circles, gave rise to the important question of the general meaning of speculative science. I t is strangely more true of science to-day, than of any other time, that it is directed toward the experiences of practical life. Nevertheless, no other scientific work has found such general interest as Einstein’s theory of relativity, which was evolved by purely abstract and theoretical methods.
