Time and reality
Ashgate, 1998 - 229 pagine
Time and Reality finds the leitmotiv of Western epistemology in the dichotomy of unity and plurality, features both inherent in the structure of our mind. It singles out this dichotomy as being responsible for the major paradoxes and puzzlements of our epistemology. Chiefly the paradoxes of movement, both in the macroworld (Zeno's paradoxes) and in the microworld (quantum physics' paradoxes of measurement). This unveils a profound coherence in our epistemology though disenchantedly shows it to be trapped in the dichotomy of unity and plurality from the very start of its engagement with the world to our present days.
