TItle: Albert Einstein's Enigma of Relative Space-Time: A Sociological Approach of Einstein's conceptual ontology. In this work, the main goal is to discuss conceptualization and figuration of Relative Space-time in Albert Einstein's Relativistic Mechanics. In order to accomplish this target, I take Norbert Elias's contributions in the fields of Sociology of Knowledge and in the Sociology of Figuration, in his work,namely: On Time: An essay, in order to discuss Albert Einstein's innovative contribution in our Sciences. To accomplish this main objective, I discuss Einstein's concept of experience at a distance according to Norbert Elias's concept of experience. It is also important to remind that Einstein's scientific contribution was measured and confirmed in 29 May 1919, in Sobral, Brazil, when a total eclipse of the sun was taken to confirm and to measure Albert Einstein's Relative space-time.With this scientific contribution, Einstein introduced a new conception of relative space-time in Modern Physics. In a second aim, I discuss the conception of action at distance in Einstein's Relativistic Mechanics according to Elias's conception of Social time. In order to a better understanding of this aim, I present some diagrams to visualize Albert Einstein's innovative conception of Relative Space-Time.
