Substantivalism, philosophy: substantivalism is an expression for the thesis that space is given independently of objects or matter and is not formed by the objects and their relations to each other. The assumption of an empty space is coherent from this point of view. The antonym to substantivalism is relationism, which assumes that space is formed by the objects and their relations to each other. See also space, space time, relationism.
