Relativitaetstheorie: Vereinheitlichte Feldtheorie

How Do You Discover New Theories?
Einstein, manuscript for Spencer Lecture, Oxford, 10 June 1933, reproduction

Einstein disputes the idea that fundamental physics theories can be constructed from empirical data; they are always free creations of the human mind, and it is mathematical simplicity that shows researchers the way. However, the actual creative principle lies in mathematics. Only after a theory has been invented can facts be derived from it that can be empirically verified.
