Space and time in contemporary physics; an introduction to the theory of relativity and gravitation by Moritz Schlick ( Book )
14 editions published between 1920 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Moritz Schlick, the influential German philosopher and leader of the logical positivist school of philosophy known as the Vienna Circle, wrote Space and Time in Contemporary Physics in 1919 specifically to introduce readers unfamiliar with Einstein's theories to the profound importance of the physicist's immense contributions. This is one of the clearest expositions in layperson's terms of Einstein's theory of relativity and its paradigm-shifting implications for philosophy and commonsense notions of reality. Einstein himself reviewed Schlick's work before publication and is thanked in the preface for "giving me many useful hints."" "With a talent for illustrative analogies and a concise, lucid style of presentation, Schlick explains both the special and the general theories of relativity. Beginning with the older Newtonian view of space, time, and the laws governing matter, the author proceeds to show how Einstein's theories solved certain problems inherent in the old view and provided a radical new conception of reality. Separate chapters discuss the special principle of relativity, the geometrical relativity of space, the mathematical formulation of special relativity, the inseparability of geometry and physics in experience, the relativity of motions and the connection with inertia and gravitation, the general theory of relativity, the significance of Einstein's fundamental new law, the finitude of the universe, and the impact of Einstein's ideas on philosophy. Since their original publication, numerous experiments have confirmed Einstein's ideas. Thus, Schlick's work continues to be a valuable and highly accessible explication of one of science's most enduring achievements. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

The name of Albert Einstein, firmly attached to the important physical theory of Relativity, has become of interest to the whole world. Accounts of Dr. Einstein's work are already many and various, but his personality has not yet become well-known. Mr. Moszkowski, a profound admirer and close companion of the now famous professor, lifts the veil in this entertaining and informing volume, and in describing many long and profoundly interesting discussions he has had with Dr. Einstein on all kinds of subjects, scientific and other, he illuminates for us the thought-world and personality of the great scientist
