Penrose: Einstein regretted the term relativity

  1. Dec 1, 2014 #1
    In the following program

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b02144gl

    Penrose asserts that Einstein regretted the term relativity because it gave ammunition to those who assert that there is not one truth or that reality is a social construct. Does anyone have exact quotes from Einstein asserting something to that effect?

    Thanks. This is almost exactly what I needed:

    Though I would like a quote from Einstein himself.

    That's why I told you to try the references.
