Eotvos' Experiment, General Relativity and the Problem of Incommensurability

|Keywords||general relativity, incommensurability, Eotvos|
The experimental works of Baron Roland von Eotvos marked a turning-point with regard the level of reliability of the proportionality between weight and mass. Moreover, owing to the fact that some his papers were published before the Einsteinian revolution, while one other was published after it, their discussion is relevant, as it will be seen, as far as the epistemological problem of incommensurability.
