This chapter begins with a discussion of Einstein's writings. It argues that the special relativity of 1905 was not a constructive theory, and part of the reason is the role that rods and clocks play in Einstein's attempt to operationalize inertial coordinate systems. It is evident that Einstein harboured a sense of unease about their status in his theory. The chapter then considers the publications of Hermann Weyl, Pauli and Eddington, W. F. G. Swann, L. Jánossy and J. S. Bell.

Keywords:   Einstein, relativity theory, Hermann Weyl, Pauli, Eddington, W. F. G. Swann, L. Jánossy, J. S. Bell
