Quotes by Leopold Infeld in Time One
The title sounds modest, yet as we read it we notice almost immediately that it is different from other papers. There are no references; no authorities are quoted, and the few footnotes are of an explanatory character. The style is simple, and a great part of this article can be followed without advanced technical knowledge. But its full understanding requires a maturity of mind and taste that is more rare and precious than pedantic knowledge, for Einstein’s paper deals with the most basic problems; it analyzes the meaning of concepts that might seem too simple to be scrutinized.
