Editorial Reviews


"...Graves first defines a framework in the philosophy of science which includes his own position of 'scientific realism.' A brief section on the historical interpretations of space and matter is followed by a discussion of general relativity theory. Finally, the book is tied together in an illuminating presentation of the physical and philosophic aspects of geometrodynamics."

"...many typical conceptual questions and difficulties that arise when one is first confronted with the ideas of general relativity are discussed in more detail than in many texts. This book gives a fair idea of the complexity of the subject, and does not use analogies or pictures for simplification.

"Graves is at his best where discussing the striking new ideas in general relativity and the objections and misconceptions they have generated.

"A valuable source of information. It goes further than anything written before in explaining general relativity to philosophers and philosophy of space-time to physicists."
