Günther: Thought and Time

Zitat

“Thus Time, the moving image of eternity, comes to rest when its flow enters the stillness of contemplative Thought.” (p. 405) #Günther #time #eternity #thought

Günther: The Kenogrammatic Theory of Logic

Zitat

“The kenogrammatic theory of logic offers such a locus; and thus Time is rendered noneliminable. But the introduction of a third value and a concomitant ontological locus gives us only a new ontology – not yet a logic to think about it in terms of designation and nondesignation. The theory of Time, therefore, requires a wider basis than three-place kenogrammatic structures provide.” (402sq.) #Günther #KenogrammaticTheoryOfLogic #time

Günther: Time and Event

Zitat

“From the very outset, the participants in the discussion disagreed. The Eleatic school of thought excluded Time from objective existence. But Heraclitus considered the static aspect of the universe as deceptive. According to him, no thing is identical with itself; its ultimate essence is an event.” (p. 396) #Günther #time #event

Günther: The Problem of Time

Zitat

“The problem whether Time can or cannot be eliminated reveals itself now as a spurious alternative. Behind it looms the larger issue of two-valued classic and many-valued transclassic logic. In Aristotelian logic, the progressive elimination of Time is, indeed, an inescapable postulate. It does not provide Time with an ontological locus of its own.” (p. 402) #Günther #time #logic

Dewar: Spacetime

Zitat

„The key difference from Newtonian spacetime, then, is that there is no ‘persistence of space over time’: since there is no notion of a vector being ‘purely temporal’, we cannot say of two points in G0 that they differ by a purely temporal vector, and hence correspond to the same point of space at two different times. (By contrast, since we do have a notion of purely spatial vectors, we can say of two points of G0 that they differ by such a vector and hence correspond to two different points of space at the same time; this is precisely the relation that foliates G0.).“ (p. 55) #Dewar #spacetime
