Reflections on Relativity

  1. Dec 11, 2004 #1
    I've just started to read Reflections on Relativity, but it seems to take a philosophical and mathematical stand on this subject. I wonder if this is a good approach to understand special relativity in some depth.

    The book is available online on

    Any comments are welcomed.

    I read a few chapters on things I know about, and they are sound, and adapted to the needs of a student who has calculus but not much advanced math beyond that. I would recommend it to people who want an honest mathematical treatment of relativity at that level.
