equivalence and derivation of general relativity
Can the theory of general relativity be deduced without appealing to
the ideas of special relativity? Quantum mechanics didn't need special relativity to come into existence even though QM eventually incorporated it.

Special Relativity is general relativity without gravity. They are based on the same ideas, except general relativity then adds gravity to the mix. So no, not really.
