Abstract

Though neither of Einstein’s relativistic ideas came directly from Kant, they were made possible by the Kantian worldview that had constantly permeated Einstein’s thinking . The original Kantian conception contributed to the development of Einstein’s theory first and foremost through the intervening philosophical and scientific work of Henri Poincaré and Ernst Mach. The most important Kantian concept necessary to understand Einstein’s relativity creation and all his 1905 papers as a whole was Kant’s idea of the systematic Unity of Nature.
