Abstract

We review the dynamical approach to spacetime theories---in particular, (a) its origins in the development of special relativity, (b) its opposition to the contemporary `geometrical' approach, and (c) the manner in which it plays out in general relativity. In addition, we demonstrate that the approach is compatible with the `angle bracket school'.
