Brilliant Posts: when Einstein met Tagore

I have a new Twitter follower, Deirdre in Action. Greetings, Deirdre! Whilst scrolling through her very interesting-looking tweets, I came across a gem, from which this short extract is taken: 

‘….On July 14, 1930, Albert Einstein welcomed into his home on the outskirts of Berlin the Indian philosopher Rabindranath Tagore. The two proceeded to have one of the most stimulating, intellectually riveting conversations in history, exploring the age-old friction between science and religion….. The following excerpt from one of Einstein and Tagore’s conversations dances between previously examined definitions  of science, beautyconsciousness, and philosophy in a masterful meditation on the most fundamental questions of human existence….’

Read, and reflect….
