        Alice in Wonderland, movie script (1951)



A Threefold Cord is a book conceived as a discussion between Viscount Samuel (1870-1963) politician, philosopher, former High Commissioner of the British Mandate of Palestine after the First World War, and Herbert Dingle.
Herbert Dingle (1890-1978) professor of history and philosophy of science at University College London, president of the Royal Astronomical Society from 1951 to 1953, was a true whistleblower for the scientific community of his time.
The criticism against Einstein have made scientific journals no longer publish his studies. Dingle's main article demonstrating that Einstein's special relativity theory does not correspond to reality, first appeared in A Threefold Cord (Appendix 2).

Professor Dingle showed that Lorentz's transformation equations (not mentioned in the 'famous' 1905 Annalen der Physik paper) are nothing but mathematical speculation that lead to the fact that Einstein's 'thought' experiment - the clock paradox, that is, the asymmetrical aging - is wrong and has no real basis.

''The relativity theory marks the final yielding to a tendency that began with Maxwell's theory of the electromagnetic field... This was eminently satisfactory, but all attempts to form a clear idea of what was going on in the physical systems concerned met frustration...
One of the greatest of his followers, Hertz, confessed that he could not follow the workings of Maxwell's mind, and concluded in exasperation: 'Maxwell's theory is - Maxwell's equations!'. That was the beginning of the acceptance of mathematical formulae as a substitute for physical theory.''
      Herbert Dingle, A Threefold Cord, p. 62

Lorentz generalized the Maxwell's theory, then Einstein appeared...

''It seems to me that hypothesis we are disscusing [on Einstein's theory] is only one more of those amusing philosophic paradoxes which are put forward from time to time to test the ingenuity of junior students. It is on the par with Achilles and the tortoise, Buridan's ass, Epaminondas the Cretan, or the clever fellow who says: 'I defy you to prove that two and two make four and not five.' In each case, of course, there is an assumption concealed in the wording of the question, which is tacitly ignored, and which is a false assumption. As soon as some form of practical test is applied, the paradox is exposed and disappears.''
      Viscount Samuel, A Threefold Cord, p. 77

''When theory has to develop without adequate experimental control - as it has in cosmology and in problems of high-speed space travel, for example - the blindness of the mathematician to the relation between his concepts and measurements is seen in its stark nakedness, if the metaphor may be allowed. His reasoning power has empted itself into his mathematics. He lives in a microcosm of abstract concepts connected by mathematical equation, like a ship that has lost its attachements to the shore of experience and has drifted off, carrying with it a crew unaware that there is anything in the universe outside their vessel. They create concepts, not because they bear a significant relation, however remote, to experience, but because they are capable of mathematical development. They develop them magnificently and interpret them nonsensically...

A legend has grown out that the scientist is in some sense a being superior to the rest of mankind, more dedicated, incorruptible; and the marvellous successes of science are ascribed to this loyalty which, seen fitfully in others, is in him unfailling. It is a complete mistake...''
       Herbert Dingle, A Threefold Cord, pp. 142-143


A Threefold Cord. Philosophy, Science, Religion. A Discussion Between Viscount Samuel and Professor Herbert Dingle. First Edition, 1961, London, George Allen and Unwin Ltd, p. 280. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition. The book is signed by authors, inscribed by Samuel, and dedicated to Lord [Edgar] Adrian (1889-1978). Lord Adrian was the recipient of the 1932 Nobel Prize for physiology. He provided experimental evidence in neurology for the all-or-none law of nerves. This book included a typed letter by Lord Adrian to Samuel.

We added, as a bonus, ''The Mind of Emily Bronte'', 1974, by Herbert Dingle, signed and inscribed by him. A very interesting book.

Price: $ 120,000.00 (for both books)
