The aim of the author in the present article is to introduce covariant derivatives of a spinor into Finsler geometry and to show that such an operation is not only interesting from the purely mathematical point of view but also from the physical one since it is thus possible to extend the spinor theory of Heisenberg  to the Finsler space  (and, in particular, to the Riemann space ). The covariant form of the spinor theory of matter is essentially a nonlinear theory.
