Wissenschaft am Abgrund: Anti-Relativisten

Wissenschaft am Abgrund: Anti-Relativisten

Public Event against Einstein
Lecture brochure by Ernst Gehrcke, 1920
Not finding much of an audience among their scientist colleagues, the anti-relativists seek out the general public. They launch their efforts on 24 August 1920 with two speeches against the theory of relativity at the Berlin Philharmonic. The physicist Ernst Gehrcke asserts in his lecture that the theory of relativity is wrong in terms of physics and nothing more than “mass suggestion” triggered by the press. For the preceding speaker, the engineer Paul Weyland, the theory of relativity is “scientific Dadaism.”
