Dewar, Neil (2018): Maxwell Gravitation. In: Philosophy of Science, Vol. 85, No. 2: pp. 249-270

Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


This article gives an explicit presentation of Newtonian gravitation on the backdrop of Maxwell space-time, giving a sense in which acceleration is relative in gravitational theory. However, caution is needed: assessing whether this is a robust or interesting sense of the relativity of acceleration depends on some subtle technical issues and on substantive philosophical questions over how to identify the space-time structure of a theory.
