The theory of linguistic relativity consists of the hypothesis that the structure of a language and the way it is formed expresses a lot about the manner the speakers view and understand the world. In other words, a language’s structure affects its speaker’s worldview or cognition.
Albert Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity The theory of Special Relativity, written by Albert Einstein in 1905, describes the laws of motion at velocities close to and at the speed of light. It was written to make the laws of motion consistent with the laws of electromagnetism. Special relativity makes two postulates: the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers and.
First English translation of Einstein's theory of relativity. In this work Einstein intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general and scientific philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The theory of relativity enriched.Learn More
In physics, the special theory of relativity, or special relativity for short, is a scientific theory regarding the relationship between space and time.In Albert Einstein's original treatment, it is based on two postulates:. the laws of physics are invariant (i.e., identical) in all inertial frames of reference (i.e., non-accelerating frames of reference); and.Learn More

Relativity is a theory in physics that can be basically implies that space and time are one in the same. This is absolutely counterintuitive to classical physics which has the two as completely different entities. Relativity can be separated into two basic concepts: Special and General Relativity.Learn More
Even though it hardly make use of mathematics, it succeeds in explaining the reasons led to the Special and General Theory of Relativity by following a purely physical way of reasoning. It truly opened my mind and considerably helped me to get a real physical feeling of ideas as abstract as time dilation and length contraction. The greatest part of the book deals with the historical facts that.Learn More
Linguistic relativity The linguistic relativity principle (also known as the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis(1)) is the idea that the varying cultural concepts and categories inherent in different languages affect the cognitive classification of the experienced world in such a way that speakers of different languages think and behave differently because of it. Roger Brown has drawn a distinction.Learn More
General relativity (GR, also known as the general theory of relativity or GTR) is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915 and the current description of gravitation in modern physics.General relativity generalizes special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time.Learn More
This theory proposes that there is a systematic relationship between the grammar of a language a person speaks and how that person both understand the world and behaves in it. Today linguists now call that theory the Linguistic Relativity Hypothesis, or Whorf-Sapir Hypothesis. Studies have not conclusively proven Whorf’s and Sapir’s theory.Learn More
In this essay, “The Theory of Relativity: by Albert Einstein”, will be the main topic I discuss. I will talk about my point of view and how I interpreted it. I also will be discussing some experiments that have been done and what scientists have found. In the articles I’ve read, the people have good reasons on why they support it and why they don’t. One article agrees with the theory.Learn More
THE GENERAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY. According to newtonian theory, gravitational effects propagate from place to place instantaneously. With the advent of Einstein's special theory of relativity in 1905, a theory uniting the concepts of space and time into that of four dimensional flat space-time (named Minkowski space-time after the mathematician Hermann Minkowski), a problem became discernible.Learn More
Minkowski’s Papers on Relativity Free Version Not only the general public, but even students of physics appear to believe that the physics concept of spacetime was introduced by Einstein. This is both unfortunate and unfair. It was Hermann Minkowski (Einstein's mathematics professor) who announced the new four-dimensional (spacetime) view of the world in 1908, which he deduced from.Learn More
Reviews 11 This richly annotated facsimile edition of “The Foundation of General Relativity” introduces a new generation of readers to Albert Einstein’s theory of gravitation. Written in 1915, this remarkable document is a watershed in the history of physics and an enduring testament to the elegance and precision of Einstein’s thought.Learn More
