## Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments | |||

Space-time, philosophy: space time is a three-dimensional space with time as a fourth dimension. The fact that time is interpreted as a dimension distinguishes the space-time from multi-dimensional mathematical spaces, in which time plays no role and which are therefore structured differently. In particular, the space-time has no measure which can equally be used for spatial distances as well as for time measurements. See also relativity theory, four-dimensionalism, world lines._____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
