In this paper we try to disentangle the development of two connected strands of thought, associated respectively with Maxwell and Poincare, so as to throw light on several questions connected with the special theory of relativity. For example, who first used the word 'relativity' in physics in the sense we understand it today, meaning: in all physical experiments, whether mechanical or electromagnetic, only the relative velocity of a body can be measured, i.e. the notion of velocity of a body… Expand
