  • Relativity and the Nature of Spacetimeby Vesselin Petkov

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 59.95

    Shows that if the world and the physical objects were three-dimensional, none of the kinematic relativistic effects and the experimental evidence supporting them would be possible. The implications of this result for physics, philosophy, and our entire world view are discussed. more...

  • The Ontology of Spacetimeby Dennis Dieks

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 180.00

    This book contains selected papers from the First International Conference on the Ontology of Spacetime. Its fourteen chapters address two main questions: first, what is the current status of the substantivalism/relationalism debate, and second, what about the prospects of presentism and becoming within present-day physics and its philosophy? The overall... more...

  • Bangs, Crunches, Whimpers, and Shrieksby John Earman

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 109.99
