    Part of the Philosophical Studies Series book series (PSSP, volume ) Abstract. The second chapter details the philosophical puzzle of persistence which was developed in the first chapter: I present the standard “answers” to the puzzle and discuss versions of 3-dimensionalism as well as worm theory and stage theory as example cases of 4. The Development of Persistent Criminality addresses one of the most pressing problems of modern criminology: Why do some individuals become chronic, persistent offenders? Because chronic offenders are responsible for the majority of serious crimes committed, understanding which individuals will become chronic offenders is an important step in helping us develop .

Yet the approach is far from traditional. It begins by stating major rival views of persistence-endurance, perdurance, and exdurance-in a spacetime framework and proceeds to investigate the. Persistence and Spacetime pursues this empirically based approach to the questions. Yuri Balashov begins by setting out major rival views of persistence -- endurance, perdurance, and exdurance -- in a spacetime framework and proceeds to investigate the implications of Einstein's theory of relativity for the debate about persistence.

Abstract. Under the eternalist hypothesis that objects or events exist temporally, but independently of being present two different views of persistence are on the market: Persisting objects endure if they are multiply located in (space-)time, and persisting objects perdure if they are singly located by having numerically different temporal parts.

In the framework of the. According to ‘four‐dimensionalism’, temporally extended things are composed of temporal parts. Most four‐dimensionalists identify ordinary continuants—the persisting objects ordinary language quantifies over and names—with aggregates of temporal parts (‘space‐time worms’), but an attractive alternate version of four‐dimensionalism identifies ordinary continuants with.

Persistence and Spacetime. Published: Septem Balashov's book is, in the end, a very useful and engaging contribution to the literature on persistence. The whole book amply repays the effort the reader invests in thinking through the issues it deals with, and, though I've claimed some of the arguments are flawed, they are never.

The problem of persistence has become, in the first place, a problem in mereology, a general theory of parts and wholes. 1 It has also become an issue in a theory of location. 2 These two topics continue to drive the debate, especially when it comes to situating the rival accounts of persistence in the “eternalist” spacetime framework.

For physicists, spacetime is inseparable from gravity, especially in the light of Einstein's general theory of relativity. In her book, Tiziana Vistarini defends string theory from the charge of background dependence, arguing that the theory "shows. COVID Resources.

Philosophy Compass, The book starts with four papers that discuss the ontological status of spacetime and the processes occurring in it from a point of view that is first of all conceptual and philosophical.

The focus then slightly shifts in the five papers that follow, to considerations more directly involving technical considerations from relativity theory.

Spacetime Physics: Edwin F. Taylor, John Archibald Wheeler: : Books highly recommended. Why. You only need basic math to read it. It goes deep into the basic concepts. John A. Wheeler was the mentor of the great Richard Fe.

For instance, the book excels in the explanations of how mass and gravity distort spacetime as well as how gravity can bend light if photons pass close enough to a massive body like our own Sun.
