ABSTRACT

As our next project, we shall describe relativity and gravitation from a point of view which is more nearly in accord with the approach of Einstein. We hope that by viewing the theory from different vantage points, we increase our understanding of the theory as a whole. The theory of gravitation as viewed within the framework of Einstein’s ideas is something so beautifully exciting that we shall be sorely tempted to try to make all other fields look like gravity, rather than continue with the Venutian trend of making gravity look like other fields that are familiar to us. We shall resist the temptation.
