学习的秘密:爱因斯坦给儿子的建议

Posted by loong on 2013/09/15 in 生活休闲 |

1915年,36岁的爱因斯坦生活在饱受战火摧残的柏林,他已分居的妻子米列娃和他的两个儿子,汉斯·艾尔伯特·爱因斯坦和爱德华·“泰特”·爱因斯坦则生活在相对安全的维也纳。那年的11月4日,爱因斯坦刚刚完成了两页可以将他送入世界名人行列和荣誉史册的杰作-他的广义相对论,爱因斯坦给11岁的儿子汉斯·艾尔伯特·爱因斯坦写了这封信。在信中,爱因斯坦和儿子谈到了关于学习的问题,让我们一起来看看爱因斯坦这位头顶杰出物理学家、和平的支持者、科学与灵性的辩手、慈善斗士等诸多光环的伟人会在儿子的学习方面给出什么建议呢.

此信英文原文转录如下:

My dear Albert,

Yesterday I received your dear letter and was very happy with it. I was already afraid you wouldn’t write to me at all any more. You told me when I was in Zurich, that it is awkward for you when I come to Zurich. Therefore I think it is better if we get together in a different place, where nobody will interfere with our comfort. I will in any case urge that each year we spend a whole month together, so that you see that you have a father who is fond of you and who loves you. You can also learn many good and beautiful things from me, something another cannot as easily offer you. What I have achieved through such a lot of strenuous work shall not only be there for strangers but especially for my own boys. These days I have completed one of the most beautiful works of my life, when you are bigger, I will tell you about it.

I am very pleased that you find joy with the piano. This and carpentry are in my opinion for your age the best pursuits, better even than school. Because those are things which fit a young person such as you very well. Mainly play the things on the piano which please you, even if the teacher does not assign those. That is the way to learn the most, that when you are doing something with such enjoyment that you don’t notice that the time passes. I am sometimes so wrapped up in my work that I forget about the noon meal. . . .

Be with Tete kissed by your

Papa.

Regards to Mama.

我亲爱的艾尔伯特,

昨天收到你可爱的来信,非常高兴。我曾经非常害怕你再也不会给我写信了。当我在苏黎世的时候,你告诉我我来到苏黎世让你很尴尬。因此我在想如果我们待在另一个没有人打扰我们的地方可能会好些。不管什么情况,我都强烈建议我们每年在一起度过一个月,这样你就会明白你有一个喜欢你,爱你的爸爸。你也可以从我这里学到很多别人不会轻易教给你的美好的东西。我艰辛工作取得的成就不光是给陌生人的,还要特别留给我自己的孩子。这些天,我完成了我生命中最漂亮的工作之一,等你再大点,我会给你讲这些。

我很高兴你在钢琴上找到了乐趣。在我看来,钢琴和木工制作是你这个年龄最好的追求,甚至强于上学。因为这是非常适合像你这样的年轻人的。主要是在钢琴上弹奏曲子会使你很快乐,即使弹奏的不是老师布置的曲目。当你非常沉醉于做一件事,以至于你都感觉不到时间流逝,这就是最高效的学习方法。我就经常埋头于我的工作而忘记吃午饭……

吻你和泰特的爸爸

向妈妈问好
