- Kemmer's reasoning for a particle theory of the meson, however, seems to be inadequate from the epistemological point of view, because it is to be noted that, contrary to Kemmer's statement, the meson was found originally as a field and later as a particle, just as, in the case of electromagnetic field, the Coulomb field was found first and them the photon.

- The deduction of this relation is as follows: – from (I) and (II) we obtain Si Sk + SkSi = i (2 Sk2 - 1)Sr i ≠k ≠r. Using this relation and (I) we have Si Sk = i Sr Sk2 This enables us to deduce the relation cited here.
