The International Congress of Philosophy, held in Naples in May of last year, promised to be of great interest for the special place that had been made to the "theory of relativity". The lack of intervention by the great German physicist-mathematician took away from that Convention the opportunity to consider and discuss an objection that was raised.
This objection concerns an essential point of the new theory: the only one in which it is forced to submit to the control of experience.
The great importance of the subject justifies the author's wish of this writing to make his objection known to the educated world, and the arguments of fact upon which it rests, in the high interest of research of the "true", which is the ultimate goal of scientific work.
