Véritablement un classique!
Roberto Torretti analyse avec une grande finesse comment la relativité restreinte et la relativité générale s'articulent avec les différentes constructions géométriques disponibles. J'ai particulièrement apprécié l'insistance avec laquelle il insiste sur la notion du temps qui est souvent relativement négligée dans les autres ouvrages du même type. Tout philosophe qui veut sérieusement discuter du temps devrait lire et relire ce livre.
