Classical Unified Field Theories -- Mendel Sach[edit]

DAGwyn: Why do you remove the information on Mendel Sachs? - SJRubenstein —Preceding unsigned comment added by SJRubenstein (talkcontribs) 01:25, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

The reasons were given in the edit description. The cited reference didn't support the text that had been added, and disrupted the nice closing of the previous text. Sachs evidently did not publish a complete theory like the others(*) in the article, and certainly did not "complete" Einstein's work.. If we were to start mentioning relatively minor contributions, there are numerous candidates from more recent times, Penrose's twistor theory for example. Since later work of this sort borrowed ideas more heavily from quantum theory, it doesn't really fit the theme of the article.
(*) The existing text concerning Whyte could also be challenged as referring to an incomplete theory, but attempts to remove the associated text turned into an "editing war", ending in a compromise in which the text remained but was adjusted to more accurately reflect the status of Whyte's work. The article would be improved by excising the section on Whyte, but I don't want to instigate that at this time. — DAGwyn (talk) 01:45, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
