Regarding the book Einstein, Relativity and Absolute Simultaneity edited by William Lane Craig and Quentin Smith. Routledge 2008. Chapter 1- The metaphysics of special relativity: three views. William Lane Craig. This deals with the Einsteinian interpretation, the Minkowskian interpretation and the Lorentzian interpretation, but, to me, is not very clear about the difference in the case of the first two. My question is, how are these two different apart from the second being more geometrical in its treatment? In other words is the author justified in calling them different interpretations of SR? The editors are philosophy professors. Matheinste.
