Über die spezielle und die allgemeine Relativitätstheorie Read & Download á PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ì No single man may claim to have rendered the same impact on the world of science – or the world at large – like Albert Einstein the German born Nobel prize winning physicist wEaking theories Published first in Germany in 1916 followed by an English language version in 1920 Relativity is undoubtedly a challenging read – but one which gives back to its reader in full measure. edit i wrote the 4 star review below before reading the fifth appendix i mean who could imagine that an appendix could change anything well this one did all the chapters in the body of the book are 2 or 3 pages Appendix V is a 20 page essay written 36 years after the rest of the book and just 3 years before einstein died it is a tour de force on the history philosophy and psychology i kid you not of the scientific understanding of empty space it was shocking thrilling amazing the book now gets 5 starscareful i think some editions don't have Appendix Voriginal 4 star reviewthe subtitle of this slim book is a clear explanation that anyone can understand but unfortunately i'm afraid that's far from true there's not too much math in the book but there is enough that anyone really needs to be replaced with any egghead but if you are already familiar with relativity this is a great book with lots of deep philosophical underpinnings as expounded my the man himself i found his writing style to be exuisite not too dry not too collouialthe treatment of special relativity is wonderfulbut trying to teach general relativity in 45 pages with no math is just too tall an order he even warns us as things start to get roughI am guilty of a certain slovenliness of treatment which as we know from the special theory of relativity is far from being unimportant and pardonable It is now high time that we remedy this defect; but I would mention at the outset that this matter lays no small claims on the patience and on the power of abstraction of the readerindeed the treatment of GR is in very broad strokes with rather obscure connections still uite enjoyable to find this readable text by one of my great heroes

Nonymous with genius Known as “the father of modern physics” his work Relativity The Special and General Theory is a volume for all who wish to gain a concrete understanding of Einstein’s groundbr. Some years ago in France a book by Jean François Gautier appeared entitled Does the universe exist Good uestionWhat if the universe were a concept like cosmic ether or phlogiston or the conspiracy of the Elders of ZionPhilosophically Gautier’s arguments make senseThe idea of the universe as the totality of the cosmos is one that comes from the most ancient cosmographies cosmologies and cosmogonies But can one describe as if seeing it from above something within which we are contained of which we are part and from which we cannot exit Can there be a descriptive geometry of the universe when there is no space outside it on which to project it Can we talk about the beginning of the universe when a temporal notion such as “beginning” must refer to the parameter of a clock while the universe must be the clock of itself and cannot be referred to anything that is external to it Can we say as Eddington does that a hundred billion stars constitute a galaxy and a hundred billion galaxies constitute the universe when as Gautier observes while a galaxy is an observable object the universe is not and therefore we would be establishing an improper analogy between two incommensurable objects Can we postulate the universe and then study with empirical instruments this postulate as if it were an object Can a singular object exist surely the most singular of all that has as its characteristic that of being only a law And what if the story of the big bang were a tale as fantastic as the gnostic account that insisted the universe was generated by the lapsus of a clumsy demiurge Basically this criticism of the notion of the universe reiterates Kant’s criticism of the notion of the worldAfter all the cultivated person’s first duty is to be always prepared to rewrite the encyclopediaPS The reflections are directly borrowed from Umberto Eco's lectures but are genuine concerns of this reviewer too uestions are addressed to Einstein of course
