The Philosophical Premises Underlying the Theory of Relativity and Its Alternative
Oct 21, 1994
The theory of relativity is widely regarded as one of the most important discoveries in the history of physics. Its predictions about the behavior of matter have been tested under the most extreme conditions and found to be in perfect agreement with observation. Despite this success, however, there remain a small number of critics. These critics are uneasy with some aspects of the theory which are at best counter-intuitive.
This workshop explores the standard of measurement under the theory of relativity, it's compatibility with Objectivism, and some alternatives.
