The invalidity of the finite Lorentz transformation is suggested. A frequent error, preserved since the original works of Lorentz, Minkowski and Einstein, is that the Lorentz transformations are written as if they referred to finite magnitudes, when in fact they should refer to infinitesimals. To this error can be traced most of the paradoxes that pervade Special Relativity.
