harles Gillispie in his history of modern science, The Edge of Objectivity, characterizes the differences between Galileo and Einstein in terms of two figures from Greek tragedy, but notes that while tragic, their lives were lonely for very different reasons, namely that Galileo's was due to the loneliness of a Greek tragedy inhering in the characters of men, whereas Einstein's was due to one inhering in the necessities of things. Describe briefly what you think Gillespie means by this, and then draw upon details from the lives of Galileo and Einstein to demonstrate exactly how their lives differed in the ways that Gillispie suggests. Devote one paragraph to Galileo, and a second to Einstein. (PS: You do not have to read Gillispie's book to respond to these questions; just think about how he regards Galileo and Einstein as having been tragic figures, but in different ways. You only need to explain what you think he may have meant by this.)
