The Concept of Time

Excerpt

The following monograph is the result of a study begun as a Doctor's dissertation at Radcliffe College a number of years ago. The purpose of that dissertation, as stated, was "to reach as complete an analysis as possible of the concept of time." The aim at present is less extensive, to analyze some of the meanings that have been referred to under the heading of "time" and to attempt some synthesis of these. The similarity of this to the aim of Aristotle in the Physica iv. 10-14 might be pointed out. It involves finding out what men have meant by time as they have used the term in various sciences and in philosophy, by surveying the problems that have arisen in connection with this concept and the solutions that have been offered for these problems. The scientific and philosophical uses of the term have not been dealt with in an entirely separate way, although a distinction has been made throughout the study as far as is practicable considering the frequent overlapping of philosophy and the sciences.
