This is a suite of a few works of Polish philosophers and physicists on philosophical difficulties of time and spacetime. with out proscribing the thematic scope of the papers, the problem conceming objectivity of time circulate runs as a uniting thread via such a lot of them. partially it's mentioned directIy, and in part the authors specialize in subject matters that are of paramount value for one's angle to that query. within the first six papers the authors take care of their issues opposed to the history of latest physics, its theories, its problems and mentioned conjectures. For the paper of S. Snihur that historical past is supplied via daily worId-outlook, and the writer discusses the matter of lifestyles and personality of the longer term within the gentle of simple ideas of cIassical common sense. The paper of A. P61tawski, concerning the perspectives of the phenomenal polish thinker Roman Ingarden, enriches the thematic scope of the coIIection introducing into it a few questions from philosophical anthropology and ethics. JERZY GOLOSZ movement, house, TIME*. summary. The paper discusses the houses of spacetime we research by way of studying the phenomenon of movement. Of particular curiosity are the spacetime symmetries. the spacetime buildings and the ontological prestige of spacetime. those difficulties are thought of at the grounds of the c1assical theories of movement contained in Newtonian physics, unique and common idea of relativity. the talk among an absolute and a relational notion of movement and its ontological implications also are analyzed.

Example text

They are narned 'tidal forces, in analogy with the well-known forces producing tides on the Earth. It is often claimed that time is affected by gravity, which makes it flow inequably. This is incorrect, since time (as weil as space) cannot be separated from gravity. They are not two independently existing entities, one of which might affect the other. The confusion arises from the fact that both space and time have a very simple form in Minkowski space where gravity is absent. It is more correct to say that time is an aspect of gravity.

He has found that though black holes are classical objects (in the sense of being described by GR), they are intimately connected with quantum effects: their classical gravitational field creates elementary particles in a purely quantum-mechanical process. The Hawking's derivation of the 'black hole radiation' was somewhat tricky and it became clear that the effect should be reliably derived in the framework of QFf on the black hole spaeetime. In general, however, the outeomes of the search for QFf on a curved spaeetime proved to be both astonishing and disappointing.

In fact, assurne that the electron was detected by a detector at point x of the spacetime. Being registered at x the electron cannot be detected somewhere else later or at the same time, since it has been captured and absorbed by the detector, and in practice it exists no more as aseparate quantum particle. (To avoid confusion: in quantum measurement theory one considers also 'non-demolishing experiments' in which the quantum object is not destroyed and the measurement can be immediately repeated giving the same outcome.
