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 anti-symmetric 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 space-time.
