PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1982:377 - 402 (1982)
A scenario is conjectured for Einstein's invention of the special theory of relativity that receives support over the widest possible number of archival, primary and secondary sources. This scenario takes into account the philosophical-physical-technological currents of 1905.
