Albert Einstein had a major influence on the study of physics.


Hi,
If I delete "the study of" in the above, do I make a change in meaning? Thanks.

    I don't think there would be a very significant difference in meaning.

    Often when we say simply "physics" we are referring not to the natural laws themselves but instead to our study, or understanding, of said laws.
