A TENTATIVE TO SAVE THE AETHER THEROY (1967) (in Russian)

​(5th chapter of D. Bohm’s book, “The Special Theory of Relativity”) (in Russian here)

 

In these inspiring lectures David Bohm explores Albert Einstein's celebrated Theory of Relativity that transformed forever the way we think about time and space. Yet for Bohm the implications of the theory were far more revolutionary both in scope and impact even than this. Stepping back from dense theoretical and scientific detail in this eye-opening work, Bohm describes how the notion of relativity strikes at the heart of our very conception of the universe, regardless of whether we are physicists or philosophers.

AETHER AND THEORY OF RELATIVITY: PROS AND CONS (2002) (in Russian)

An analysis of the principles of the theory of relativity shows that constancy of velocity of wave processes in moving inertial frames, and thus the equality of these systems, can be derived as a consequence of the Doppler effect in the measurement procedure of spatio-temporal parameters. Therefore, the allegation of the constancy of velocity of light is not an independent axiom of relativity theory.
