Abstract

In Part III of Einstein's book he first deals with questions about the structure of the universe from the standpoint of Newton's theory of gravitation and then from the standpoint of his own conclusion that the universe must be finite and yet unbounded at the same time. He then spends most of the rest of the book rationalizing this self-contradiction with arguments involving pure logic alone.
