Relativity for All
|Publisher||Methuen & Co.|
The aim of this book is to present the theory of relativity in the simplest possible language, without the use of mathematics. No previous knowledge of physics or astronomy is assumed on the part of the reader. The subject is treated in its relation to the general problem, which confronts all thoughtful persons, namely: What is the nature of the world in which we live? The view is maintained that relativity offers a simpler explanation of Nature than those to which we are accustomed, and that its apparent difficulty arises mainly from its originality.
