On the Energy Content of Resting Bodies

Ein thermodynamisches Konzept von Materie und Zeit

The book compares two fundamental physical theories: thermodynamics and special relativity. While special relativity postulates the mass-energy equivalence, the thermodynamic method is shown to be compatible with a matter-energy equivalence. The far-reaching consequences of matter-energy equivalence are presented.

  • Novel, thermodynamical interpretation of the equation E = mc².
  • Microscopic justification of time's arrow and solution of the time paradox in physics.
  • Based on philosophical and historical sources (with original quotes).
