The Convection of Light by Moving Matter

    Article metrics


    M. MENGES seems to have misunderstood the drift of my notice, which was intended as a critical review, not an abstract, of his two published papers, without any direct reference to his unpublished covering letter at all. I am not conscious of having attributed any views respecting Einstein's theories, either for or against, to M. Menges, whilst the references to Newtonian principles and the older electromagnetic theory followed naturally from the Phil. Mag. paper and its references to the books of Jeans and H. A. Lorentz. I added the reference to v. Laue's paper for the sake of completeness, for it shows that the experiments of Fizeau and Zeeman do not lead to the result that Einstein's theory is inadmissible, as M. Menges states in his letter.
