reference Albert Einstein 'Essays in Science copyright 1934. ""The whole
evolution of our ideas about the processses of nature , with which we have
been concerned so far, might be regarded as an organic developement of
Newtons ideas. But while the process of perfecting the field-theory was still
in full-swing, the facts of heat, radiation, the spectra, radio-activity, etc.,
revealed a limit to the serviceableness of the whole intellectual system
which todays still seems to us absolutely insuperable in spite of immense
success at certain points. Many physicists maintain- and there are weighty
arguments in there favor-that in the face of these facts not merely the
differential law but the law of causation itself-hitherto the fundamental
postulate of all natural science-has collapsed. Even the possibility of a
spatio-temporal construction, which can be unambiguously coordinated with
physical events, is denied.
