Overview

This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date and accessible introduction to the philosophy of space and time.
Ray considers in detail the central questions of space and time which arizse from the ideas of Zeno, Newton, Mach, Leibniz and Einstein. Time, Space and Philosophy extends the debate in many areas:absolute simultaneity is examined as well as black holes, the big bang and even time travel.
Time, Space and Philosophy will be invaluable to the student of philosophy and science and will be of considerable interest to mathematics students. The clear, non-technical approach should also make it suitable to for the general reader.
