Which geometries on a smooth manifold (apart from Lorentzian metrics) can serve as a spacetime structure? This question is comprehensively addressed from first principles in eight lectures, exploring the kinematics and gravitational dynamics of all tensorial geometries on a smooth manifold that can carry predictive matter equations, are time-orientable, and allow to distinguish positive from negative particle energies.

The first six lectures are devoted to Special Relativity, and the remaining ones to Einstein's General Relativity and Gravitation Theory and to relativistic Electromagnetism. Due attention is given to the critically conceptual side of the subject.

This book goes back to the work of the philosophers and astronomers of two thousand years ago; and it extends to that of Einstein, whose work laid the foundations for our present-day ideas about the nature of space itself.

There is a constant demand for information about this much-debated topic of relativity. In order to make a popular explanation of this far-reaching theory available, the present book is published. (first published in 1920)

In this book we will survey various alternative approaches to the problem of gravitation pursued around the turn of the last century and try to assess their potential for integrating the contemporary knowledge of gravitation.
