By Philipp Frank

Das Manuskript zu diesem Buch ist unter merkwürdigen Um­ ständen entstanden. Ich begann die Niederschrift 1939 in ny, setzte sie 1940 in Chicago citadel und beendete den größten Teil 1941 in Boston. Das Manuskript warfare in deutscher Sprache geschrieben, aber begreiflicherweise unter der damaligen Reichs­ regierung nicht für eine Veröffentlichung in deutscher Sprache bestimmt; 'es sollte ins Englische übersetzt und in Amerika ver­ öffentlicht werden. Bevor die übersetzung beendet warfare, wurde die Einsteinsche Relativitätstheorie, die oft als eine spekulative Hypothese an­ gesehen und unterschätzt wurde, die Grundlage einer ganz neuen Wendung in der technischen Entwicklung der Menschheit: Die Kernenergie des Atoms wurde die Energiequelle der Zukunft, und all die trüben Prophezeiungen über ein Versagen der Energie­ quellen konnten zum alten Gerümpel geworfen werden. Jm Jahre 1945 fügte ich eine Darstellung dieser Wendung in englischer Sprache hinzu, und dieser Teil ist der einzige im Buch, der aus dem Englischen übersetzt ist. Die amerikanische Ausgabe erschien 1947; große Teile der deutschen Fassung wurden nicht aufgenom­ males. Daher ist das vorliegende Buch die erste vollständige Wieder­ gabe meines Manuskriptes.
