Translated & edited by Dr. A. Gotfryd. From the Overview: The Rebbe possesses an unprecedented combination of abilities enabling him to resolve Torah-science issues. Indeed, since Maimonides there probably has not been another Torah scholar with an encyclopedic knowledge of the sciences and the philosophy of science comparable to the Rebbe. This only partially related to the fact that in the 1930′s he studied science, philosophy, and engineering at some of the best universities in Europe – the Sorbonne, the Polytechnic Institute of Paris, and the University of Berlin. The academic background, combined with mastery of the nigle (the “open,” talmudic meaning of the Torah) and the nistar (the secret meanings of the Torah) and the special vision of a tzaddik (righteous person) enables the Rebbe to resolve the Torah versus science “argument” and put it into the proper perspective.
