Klimov E.A. (2014). A. Einstein and psychological knowledge. National Psychological Journal, 3(15), 27-30

The paper, based on the book “The Evolution of Physics” written by A. Einstein and L. Infeld, analyzes the contribution of the great physicist in psychological science. The author who supports his arguments by quotations convincingly proves that Einstein could enrich the psychological knowledge in the field of scientific creativity. In the above mentioned book he has done a huge work to identify the inner side of the scientist, the mechanisms of creativity in science. Having analysed the materials of “The Evolution of Physics” E. Klimov demonstrates that they are an invaluable material for the researchers of psychology of creativity, as the authors of the book pay special attention to the general scientific determinants of the scientist’s research, omitting terms, specific notions or complex mathematical apparatus, which is a working arsenal of physics.

The article also shows how values have developed the concept of Einstein’s creative activity for the development of the modern education system, how it can be possible to overcome formalization which is inherent in today’s schools, and eventually makes educational process boring and uninteresting.

The author concludes that Einstein’s work produces an “infecting” impact on the reader, attaching the reader to the world of search and fulfillment of creative discoveries in science. In psychology, especially for psychology of education, its practical significance is to reveal the content of the professional activity of the scientist. This content as a kind of “standard” should be the basis of the learning process, so not only the Russian soil but also the local education system could give birth to “quick-minded Newtons”.
