“Common sense invents and constructs no less in its own field than science does in its domain”

TLS signed “A. Einstein,” one page, 8.5 x 10.5, blindstamped Princeton letterhead, September 21, 1951. Einstein sends one of his now-famous and often quoted aphorisms, in full: “Common sense invents and constructs no less in its own field than science does in its domain. It is, however, in the nature of (naive) scientists common sense not to be aware of this situation.” Intersecting folds, chipping and small tears to edges, show-through from mounting remnants at the top, and a block of toning from previous display, otherwise fine condition. A thought-provoking and quintessentially Einsteinian letter in the pithy style he used with children and students, demonstrating an under appreciated aspect of his genius—the ability to simplify the complex. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
