Die neuesten Fortschritte der Physik haben besonders deshalb die Beachtung so weiter Kreise gefunden, weil die fesselnden Pro bleme, zu denen sie führen, von hervorragender Seite dargestellt worden sind. Ich wollte zur rechten Würdigung dieser neuen Er kenntnisse dadurch etwas beitragen, daß ich einen kurzen Über blick über die älteren Forschungen gebe, von denen die heutige Entwicklung ausgegangen ist. Die Experimente und Überlegungen von Newton und Huygens, Young und Fresnel, Crookes und Thomson und vieler anderer Forscher in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart haben die Wege gebahnt, die zu der heutigen Stellung führen; nur dann können wir die Bedeutung dieser Stellung richtig beurteilen, wenn wir etwas von dem Gelände kennen, über das der Weg zu ihr geführt hat. Das Leitmotiv meines Buches ist der alte Kampf zwischen den zwei Theorien über das Licht, der so außerordentlich stark zur Entwicklung der Physik beigetragen hat, nämlich zwischen der Wellentheorie und der Korpuskulartheorie. Beide sind auf immer mit den Namen von Newton und Huygens verbunden. Jede von ihnen galt für eine bestimmte Zeit als die einzig richtige; aber heute endet der Streit auf ebenso unerwartete wie bezeichnende Weise, wir müssen Hypothesen miteinander vereinigen, von denen man früher glaubte, daß sie sich gegenseitig ausschlössen. Man sieht daran, wie gefährlich es sein kann, Vorstellungen unseres Geistes zu allzufesten Glaubenssätzen werden zu lassen. Noch wird es uns schwer, zu verstehen, wie beide Theorien gleichzeitig zutreffen können, aber wir müssen versuchen, es zu verstehen, weil so viele überzeugende Gründe für jede von ihnen sprechen
