HISTORICAL DEVELOP~lEXT OF IDEAS AS TO THE NATURE OF SPACE AND TIME. 1. Since the year 1905, which marked the publication of Einstein's momentous article on the theory of relativity, the development of scientific thought has led to a complete revolution in accepted ideas as to the nature of space and time, and this revolution has in turn profoundly modified those dependent sciences, in particular mechanics and electro magnetics, which make use of these two fundamental concepts in their considerations. In the following pages it will be our endeavor to present a description of these new notions as to the nature of space and time, * and to give a partial account of the consequent modifications which have been introduced into various fields of science. Before proceeding to this task, however, we may well review those older ideas as to space and time which until now appeared quite sufficient for the correlation of scientific phenomena.
