Christopher Ray addresses many of the fundamental issues of the philosophy of space and time, while avoiding daunting technicality and jargon. The paradoxical nature of space and the problem of infinitesimals are aspects of a discussion which debates the premises of the work of Newton, Einstein and other scientific giants, presenting these ideas in a philosophical context. Ray applies his findings to questions of cosmology, including the big bang and determinism, and concludes with a re-evaluation of the philosophy of relativity. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of philosophy of science, metaphysics and mathematics.
