The chapters which follow are lectures delivered before the Edinburgh Mathematical Colloquium on the subject of Relativity. The subject is treated in the historical order, the author brought it down to the stage in which it was left by Minkowski.

This is a book on the foundations of Special Relativity from a synthetic viewpoint. The book has a strong visual appeal, modeling with affine geometry. As a subproduct we develop several programs to visualize relativistic motions.
This text presents special relativity from first principles and logically arrives at the conclusions using simple diagrams and some thought experiments. It is possible to understand the first part of the book using only high school algebra.
