Jerzy GOŁOSZ – On Fundamental Differences between Time and Space

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN

The paper critically analyses the claim that time is a similar entity to space resulting from the claims that there is no flow of time, a distinguished present does not exist, and things persist by enduring. Namely, it is maintained in the paper that arguments of adherents of such positions, both philosophical and based on the theory of relativity, are not strong enough to overcome either the arguments of their opponents or the conviction based on our everyday experience. The paper also tries to show that dynamic scientific theories, such as for instance the Newtonian theory, the Maxwell theory or the theory of evolution, may be interpreted as theories describing the dynamic becoming of a respective part of the world.

Keywords: presentism, eternalism, spatialising time, flow of time, endurantism, perdurantism, becoming
