Space, time, and spacetime

Space, time, and spacetime

(p.33) 2 Space, time, and spacetime

Michael Pelczar

Oxford University Press

Chapter 2 concerns the nature of physical time. It traces the Newtonian conception of time and space to its conceptual foundations, and see how the relativistic account of spacetime arises from its Newtonian origins. The main goal of the chapter is to dispel the popular misconception that the relativistic account of spacetime is somehow inapplicable to the world of everyday experience, or discontinuous with our ordinary ways of thinking about time and space.

Keywords:   Newtonian space, Newtonian time, relativistic spacetime
