Space, philosophy: various discussions deal, among others, with the question whether the space is absolute or whether empty space is possible. In different sciences, multi-dimensional spaces with certain properties are used to better calculate like Hilbert spaces in the theory of relativity or multidimensional spaces in mathematical nodal theory. No ontological assumptions are made. See also substantivalism, relativism, movement, absoluteness, compactness, conceptual space, dimensions, logical space, four-dimensionalism.

Naomi Klein on Space - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 930
Space/Naomi Klein: Klein describes the conquest of all spaces, be they urban spaces, schools and universities, be they imaginary spaces and imagined identities, by the brands. Since its beginning in the 19th century and its further development in the course of the 20th century, it has distinguished classical advertising from the novel brand policy of the 1990s. With this policy the products themselves ((s) without special characteristics) are transformed into transcendent machines for conveying meaning(1).
