A signed letter in which Albert Einstein discusses quantum physics has been given a minimum bid of $1,000 in an online auction that closes on February 28.
The 1938 letter sees Einstein rejecting his "honourable colleague" Dr Stromberg's request for Einstein to write a forward for his book. In doing so, he refers to quantum theory as "fundamentally opposed to modern science" and talks of a "tendency toward a mystical view, which is being publicised in popular scientific literature."
The lot will be sold complete with a selection of ephemera that relates to the pair's correspondence as well as photographs of Einstein.
PFC Auctions is currently offering a remarkable series of correspondence between Einstein and the respected socialist philosopher Corliss Lamont, each of which has a minimum bid of just £100 and offers insight into the genius' social and political awareness.
