I was reading this article Why Einstein did not believe that general relativity geometrizes gravity and it seemed rather interesting. So it would be interesting to hear what others think of it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It suggests that Einstein's view on GR was that it does not reduce gravity to inertia and geometry but rather that GR describes gravito-inertial field.

So as I understand it physics are determined by gravito-inertial field and on what geometrical background we chose to describe this gravito-inertial field is a mater of (mathematical) convenience (say we chose such a geometry that gravito-inertial field is reduced to inertial field).
