CFI-LI PHILOSOPHY GROUP "Time and Space-Part 2" presented by Jola Karl

Time and Space-Part 2  presented By Jola Karl

We continue our discussion - What is time? This deceptively simple question is the single most important problem pertaining to our understanding of reality,  natural laws and  existence. Time , space and consciousness are the most pervasive  aspects of  human experience: everything we do, think, experience  is within  time and space. Over the ages,  religious traditions, philosophers and scientists  offered   different views of  time and  examined  various aspects of  time.  We will talk about  some of these notions :

1. Before and After  2. Being and becoming 3. Straight arrow of time  and " unique event"  4. Cyclical view of time  5.  Duality of time 6. Absolute time , space  and mathematics ( Descartes, Newton) 7. Time as  conflict 8. Time felt and time perceived 9.Time as a priori concept  (before experience) (Kant) 10. Essential unreality of time ( present, past and future is  subject of human experience - Einstein , Plato) 11. Curvature of space and time  12. Time is real - Evolution of life (Darwin), natural laws, mathematics  and all other aspects of reality. Living "in time" as opposed  to "out of time"

Jola Karl graduated from St. John's University as a philosophy and history major.

    I second, or third, that emotion. Well done, Jola. A very interesting topic, with some difficult ideas. I learned quite a few things.

    Joined this group a week or so ago. I used to ponder time in high school and find the subject fascinating. I'm really looking forward to this event!
