About this book

Drawing on the works of such thinkers as Charles Darwin, Karl Pearson, James Frazer and Einstein himself, Christopher Herbert shows that the idea of relativity produced changes in many fields during the 19th century and argues that the early relativity movement was closely bound to motives of political and cultural reform and to the radical critiques of the ideology of authoritarianism.
