Anderson proposed that thermodynamics should not focus on the Lorentz transformations, because a Lorentz transformation is not needed, as in a stationary frame of coordinates, to meet the principal of special relativity.
Einstein's theory of special relativity completely transformed modern physics; not only did it do away with the old notions of absolute space and time, it also introduced some new and rather startling fundamental concepts.
