Das Problem der Gleichzeitigkeit


    ALL who desire to acquaint themselves with the attitude of a serious and well-informed critic of relativity theory from the philosophical point of view may be recommended to read this book. The author examines the postulates and axioms of geometry, time-theory and kinematics, and the principles underlying measurements of space, time and motion, and then discusses the determination of the simultaneity of events. Although his conclusions are certain to be challenged by geometers and relativists alike, nevertheless his book will be found very interesting and stimulating, whatever may be the reader's opinions on the many contentious questions raised in it.
