The role of philosophical reflections of Stanislaw Zaremba in the context of a dispute on the foundations of the theory of relativity
Languages of publication
The aim of this paper is to present the philosophical background of Stanisław Zaremba’s critique of Einstein’s theory of relativity. In the 1920s, Zaremba was the most prominent Polish opponent of this theory. His papers influenced some discussions related to Einstein’s theory, especially in France and in Poland. This paper takes also into account the development of Zaremba’s critique. The analysis of his papers shows that he never became a follower of the Einstein’s theory of relativity. Such a statement compels us to confront it with the previous interpretations of Zaremba’s thought.
