How is time and space an ontological problem.com
Philosophy of space and time is a branch of philosophy which deals with issues surrounding the ontology, epistemology and character of space and time. [ While this type of study has been central to philosophy from its inception, the philosophy of space and time, an inspiration for, and central to early analytic philosophy, focuses the subject into a number of basic issues. A traditional realist
position in ontology is that time and space have existence apart from the human mind. Idealists deny or doubt the existence of objects independent of the mind. Some anti-realists whose ontological position is that objects outside the mind do exist, nevertheless doubt the independent existence of time and space. Kant, in the Critique of Pure Reason, described time as an a priori notion that, together with other a priori notions such as space, allows us to comprehend sense experience. For Kant, neither space nor time are conceived as substances, but rather both are elements of a systematic framework we use to structure our experience. Spatial measurements are used to quantify how far apart objects are, and temporal measurements are used to quantitatively compare the interval between (or duration of) events. ]
