From the Paper:

"This paper will discuss what makes Albert Einstein a hero. Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary gives several definitions of a hero, most of which apply to Einstein. According to Webster's a hero is a mythological or legendary figure endowed with great ability; a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities; the central figure in an event, period or movement; and an object of extreme admiration and devotion. These definitions can be readily applied to Einstein who was indeed a hero of the world community. Unlike heroes of legend, however, Einstein was a modern hero.

In naming Albert Einstein A Person of the Century@ TIME Magazine wrote for Einstein to become a modern icon, especially in America, required a total revision of the definition of a hero."
