M. MENGES reprints and expands some papers which have appeared in the Comptes rendus of the Paris Academy of Sciences, chiefly on the electro-optics of moving systems. He finds the special theory of relativity self-inconsistent and proposes in some measure to revert to the older “classical” conceptions. Nothing but a detailed and complete discussion of his views would be worth undertaking; and since it is impossible to find space for this here, we offer no opinion concerning them.
