Einstein & Deutsche Physik:
In the early days of Classical
Atomic Physics, the classical Newtonian laws of motion created to
understand machinery & mechanics, were also thought to apply to atoms.
After Heisenberg's 'Uncertainty Principle', the 'Quantics' assumed that atoms were not governed by these same
laws of physics, so they attempted to create a new science, a mathematical
fantasy called quantum mechanics, in an attempt to explain some apparently
strange or unusual behaviour of
atoms. Unfortunately quantum mechanics missed the most fundamental
principle, that of the 'Dimensional nature of atoms', which Einstein would
have surely arrived at, if Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and the Nazi
Deutsche Physik movement had not thwarted his attempts. The Nazi
Deutsche Physik movement declared that
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity was Jewish and therefore not acceptable
or applicable to 'German atomic physics'.
From Wikipedia, the free
Deutsche Physik (literally: "German
Physics") or Aryan Physics was the name
given to a nationalist movement in the German physics community in the
early 1930s against the work of Albert Einstein, labeled "Jewish
Physics" (German: Jüdische Physik). The term was taken from the
title of a 4-volume physics textbook by Philipp Lenard in the 1930s.
Lenard, one of the early architects of the Deutsche
The movement itself began as an extension of a German nationalist movement
in the physics community which went back as far as World War I. A number
of German physicists, including Wilhelm Wien and the especially passionate
Philipp Lenard had then signed a number of "declarations" that
there was a need to remove a perceived unfair amount of British influence
from physics (such as the renaming of German-discovered phenomena with
perceived English-derived names, such as "X-ray" instead of
"Röntgen ray"), and a declaration of the national character of
science as a method of emphasising local differences in theory and
practice. After the war, the affronts of the Treaty of Versailles kept
some of these nationalistic feelings running high, especially in Lenard.
This was not a sentiment unique to physics or physicists—this blend of
nationalism and perceived affront from foreign and internal forces formed
a key part of the popularity of the newly forming National Socialist Party
(Nazis) in the late 1920s.
During the early years of the twentieth
century, Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity was met with much bitter
controversy within the physics communities of the world. There were many
physicists, especially the "old guard," who were suspicious of
the intuitive meanings of
Einstein's theories, and many were not capable of understanding the
complicated mathematics that stood at their core. Many of these classical
Einstein's dismissal of the notion of a luminiferous
had been a mainstay of their work for the majority of their productive
They were not convinced by the empirical evidences for Relativity: the
measurements of the perihelion of Mercury and the null result of the Michelson-Morley
experiment might be explained in other ways, they thought (they
were not alone in this assertion) and the results of the Eddington
experiment (the first observed instance of gravitational
lensing, a key prediction of Einstein's) were experimentally
problematic enough to be dismissed as meaningless by the hardcore
Many of these doubters were very
distinguished experimental physicists—Lenard was himself a Nobel
laureate in Physics. Philipp Lenard claimed that the mass–energy
equivalence formula needed to be credited to Friedrich Hasenöhrl to make
it an aryan creation.
National Socialism (Nazi
Stark attempted to become the Führer of German
When the Nazis entered the political
scene, Lenard quickly attempted to ally himself with them, joining the
party long before it was fashionable to do so. With another Nobel Prize in
Physics laureate, Johannes Stark, Lenard
began a core campaign to label Einstein's Relativity as Jewish Physics,
decrying it as overly abstract, out of touch with reality,
associated with moral
relativism, and practiced exclusively by Jews and Jewish
(Authors Notes: This provides the foundation of the
Quantic misconception of an alternative
‘Relativism’, the basis of Quantic ‘mathematical fantasy’).
For a few years in the early 1930s, this
found strong support from Nazi leadership, as it played upon a number of
Nazi ideological themes, and gave yet another method to harass and
delegitimize Jewish citizens and institutions.
Lenard and Stark enjoyed the Nazi support because it allowed them to
undertake a professional coup for their preferred scientific theory; an
example of using heavy-handed politics to resist an ideologically
unwelcome scientific "paradigm
Under the rallying cry that physics should be more "German" and
"Aryan," Lenard and Stark, with backing from the Nazi
leadership, entered on a plan to pressure and replace physicist positions
at German universities with people teaching their preferred theories (by
this time, the early 1930s, there were no longer any Jewish physicist
professorships in Germany, since under the Nuremberg
Laws Jews were not allowed to work in universities).
Stark in particular was also trying to get himself installed as the Führer
of physics—not an entirely fanciful goal, given the Gleichschaltung
(literally, "coordination") principle applied to other
professional disciplines, such as medicine, under the Nazi regime, whereby
a strict linear hierarchy was created along ideological lines.
They met with moderate success, but the
support from the Nazi party was not as great as Lenard and Stark would
have preferred. After a long period of harassment of the quantum physicist
Heisenberg, including getting him labeled a "White
Jew" in the SS's weekly, Das Schwarze Korps (The Black Corps),
they began to fall from influence.
Heisenberg was not only a pre-eminent physicist whom even the Nazis
realised they were better off with than without, however
"Jewish" his theory might be in the eyes of Stark and Lenard,
but Heisenberg had, as a young boy, attended school with SS chief Heinrich
In a moment of historical strangeness, Heisenberg's mother actually
contacted Himmler's mother and asked her if she would please tell the SS
to give "Werner" a break. After beginning a full character
evaluation (which Heisenberg both instigated and passed), Himmler forbade
further attack on the physicist. Heisenberg would later employ his
"Jewish physics," in the German
project to develop nuclear fission for the purposes of nuclear
weapons or nuclear energy use.
It is interesting to note that Heisenberg used "Jewish physics"
(Classical Physics) and not ‘quantum theory’ in developing Nuclear
Fission, one of the many false claims made, ad-infinitum, by later
Soon, Stark (Lenard, by this point,
played less and less of a role) ran into even more difficulty, as other
scientists and industrialists known for being exceptionally
"Aryan" came to the defense of Relativity and quantum
quantum theory and the later quantum mechanics is based on Heisenberg’s
Uncertainty Principle, which replaced Stark’s ‘Aryan Physics’, as an
equally ‘fatuous’ assumption and basis for ‘Relativity’.
As historian Mark Walker puts it, "despite his best
efforts, in the end his (Stark) science was not accepted, supported, or
used by the Third Reich. Stark spent a great deal of his time during the
Third Reich fighting with bureaucrats within the National Socialist state.
Most of the National Socialist leadership either never supported Lenard
and Stark, or abandoned them in the course of the Third Reich."
There was little scientific core to Deutsche
Physik—it was primarily reactionary
in its scope, lashing out at modern physics and its practitioners.
Ideologically, its key claim was that there was "national
character" in science, a denial of the claim of science's
universality and internationalism (it, like Nazi ideology, also identified
"internationalism" as being synonymous with "Jewishness").
This was not entirely false: there are
national "styles" of science, differences in method, theory, and
knowledge from place to place, often generaliseable along
national borders. There were key differences, on the whole, between German
and British physics in the late 19th century—different concerns (the
British physicists cared more for the establishment of intuitive
models while the Germans were on the whole more
content with using equations without cosmological interpretation),
Germans became known for "brass machine" physics due to their
use of increasingly
complicated apparatus, and different systemic models (the German
university system and the British one differed among many lines,
which introduced key differences in their institutions of science).
Deutsche Physik though went much further than this, proposing that
different countries could, and should, have entirely different theories of
science based on their localised conditions. This extrapolation is
generally not recognised as being sensible today.
It is occasionally put forth that there
is a great irony in the Nazis' labeling modern physics as "Jewish
science," since it was exactly modern physics—and the work of many
European exiles—which was used to create the war-ending atomic
bomb. However, the exodus of German Jewish intellectuals and
scientists happened far earlier than the popularisations of the notions of
Deutsche Physik and "Jewish physics," and even if the German
government had not embraced Lenard and Stark's ideas, the anti-Semitic
content of the Nazi regime was enough by itself to destroy the Jewish
scientific community in Germany.
Furthermore, the German
nuclear energy project was never pursued with anywhere near the
vigor of the Manhattan Project in the United States, and for that reason
would likely not have succeeded in any case. But there is one connection:
much of the push for the formation of an Allied bomb project came from
European scientists—such as Leo Szilard, Edward Teller, Enrico Fermi,
and Albert Einstein—who had fled Europe because of Hitler's anti-Jewish
Deutsche Physik stands in history as
being an explicit intersection of science and politics, comparable in ways
in the Soviet Union, the treatment of many scientists (especially Big
Bang cosmologists) in China during the Cultural Revolution, and
the controversy over state support for Intelligent
Design in the United States.
