Transcript Title: EINSTEIN 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: Students engage with Einstein's theories of relativity, use them to analyze philosophical problems, and examine their philosophical and practical implications. Students learn to apply these conceptual tools to the analysis of space, time, and gravity, as well as to formulate and argue for their own perspectives on the philosophical implications of relativity theory. One is often faced with unsubstantiated declarations about the implications of Einstein's theories, by both scientists and non-scientists. This course equips non-scientists with the conceptual tools needed to critically analyze these claims for themselves. It also provides students with the tools needed to discuss the philosophy of space and time from a modern perspective.
