Henri Poincare's work on mathematical features of the Lorentz transformations was an important precursor to the development of special relativity. In this paper I compare the approaches taken by Poincare and Einstein, aiming to come to an understanding of the philosophical ideas underlying their methods. In section (1) I assess Poincare's contribution, concluding that although he inspired much of the mathematical formalism of special relativity, he cannot be credited with an overall conceptual… CONTINUE READING
