PHIL 31.01 Space and Time

In this course, we will consider some historically significant questions about the nature of space, time and spacetime. How are space, time and change related? Is space some kind of substance or container for events? Or is space a relation between things? Is time mind-dependent? How, if at all, is motion or persistence through space and time possible? Are the past, present and future equally real? Is time travel possible?

Prerequisite

One Philosophy course, or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:TMV

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
