Wissenschaft am Abgrund: Anti-Relativisten

My Response
Berliner Tageblatt, 27 August 1920
Einstein reacts with a polemical article against the anti-relativists. He does not intend to concern himself at all with Weyland’s “heavy-handed crudeness;” he continues Gehrcke’s critique, in the sharpest of language, all the way to its absurd logical conclusion. The anti-Semitc undertones, which have already accompanied the controversy about the theory of relativity for some time, induce Einstein to remark that his theories might perhaps be received differently were he a “German nationalist, with or without swastika, instead of a Jew of liberal, international disposition.”
