dc.description.abstractThe concepts of time and space as they are treated in the realist interpretation of Einstein's theory of Special Relativity are investigated and found wanting in coherence. The theoretical basis of what constitutes a valid scientific explanation is considered from the viewpoint of Kant and Kepler, and on this basis there is no proper scientific explanation provided by realist SRT for clock dilation and length contraction.en
