A Theory of Monads: Outlines of the Philosophy of the Principle of Relativity by Herbert Wildon Carr (1857 - 1931).

Since the publication of this book, a little more than a year ago, the interest in Einstein and the principle of relativity has very greatly increased. There are now a large number of popular expositions, and the theory itself has undergone some notable advances in its philosophical, mathematical and physical application. In pure philosophy Lord Haldane's Reign of Relativity has applied it to the direct interpretation of the theory of knowledge. In mathematical physics the important work of Hermann Weyl, Space-Time-Matter, is an advance even on Einstein, and applies the principle not only to the geometry of masses, but to that of intermolecular movements, and to electro-magnetic phenomena generally, thus making it embrace the physical world in its entirety.

The main purpose of this book is to show the historical relations of the new principle to the old philosophical problems and to the classical theories
of space and time. I have, with the exception of a few important emendations, left the historical chapters unaltered, but I have added a new
chapter on "Einstein's Theory" in order to show more clearly than the original work did the nature of the revolution which it effects in
scientific method and in the concept of physical reality. ( Preface)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/cu31924029032352/page/n5/mode/2up

Oh man, skimming through this is taking me back to when I studied philosophy of science in my undergrad! Such a fascinating overlap between the two areas! I was going to ask for the introduction but I think I'll go for the final chapter instead.

I agree! I have a group project, almost done, that was about the philosophy of relativity, that one was very interesting as well. When I heard about monads in that one, I knew I had to do this one. My mind will be blown, but that's the fun part! The Introduction is yours! Thank you, Deborah!

What a neat book! I'd like to try my hand at Section 5 if possible. If I can knock this one out over the weekend, I might request another section or two. Thanks!
