In the fifties the modeling of non-Newtonian fluids initiated the search for invariant time derivatives with respect to certain space time transformations. Then Euclidean Transformations were selected to establish the Principle of Material Frame Indifference and moreover, the introduction of Nth grade fluids. However, the two concepts lead to serious inconsistencies in both thermodynamic modeling and experimental observations. In 1986 the subject has been resolved in a remarkable paper by I. Müller and K. Wilmanski. In this lecture we show how an appropriate model of non-Newtonian fluids may be incorporated in Continuum Thermodynamics as it was laid down by D. Bothe and W. Dreyer.
