Abstract. The fundamental concepts of General Relativity have been reexamined. The
heuristic value of the
concept of general covariance in seeking new laws of nature is acknowledged,
in that any new
tensor, which arises naturally within the development, is deemed as a
candidate for representing a
physical quantity. The inclusion of the antisymmetric part of the metric
connection is seen to lead
to field equations which do not require the ad hoc introduction of an energy
tensor of matter. The
natural appearance of this tensor shows that the field equations of General
Relativity may be derived
from a geometrical tensor identity. The theory indicates, even more than
ever, how the physics which
can occur in the Universe coincides with the geometry of spacetime.
