Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

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.

Perler I 228
Space/Animal/Thinking/Proust: intuitive, space is a kind of empty framework for possible perceptual content.
The relation which is of interest to us is the occurrence at the same place, i.e the equivalence class for all perception experience that affect the same localization in the environment.
Proust: this relation is interesting because it does not presuppose either the concept of space or the concept of a concept. It is purely logical.
Proust: the occurrence in the same place is also essential as a basis for the recognition of objects.
