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)
This book examines the evolution of the principle of relativity in its classical, special, and general incarnations, with the aim of showing how it has repeatedly inspired advances in our understanding of the physical world.

The main goal of this document is to propose a big picture of gravitation, where Einstein's relativity arises as a natural increment to Newton's theory. It is designed for students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.
