Its fourteen chapters tackle major questions: first, what's the present prestige of the substantivalism/relationalism debate, and moment, what in regards to the customers of presentism and turning into inside of present-day physics and its philosophy? the general tenor of the 4 chapters of the book’s first half is that the clients of spacetime substantivalism are bleak, even if assorted attainable positions stay with recognize to the ontological prestige of spacetime. half II and half III of the booklet are dedicated to presentism, eternalism, and changing into, from various views. within the six chapters of half II it truly is argued, in several methods, that relativity conception doesn't have crucial effects for those concerns. It definitely is correct that the constitution of time is diversified, in response to relativity thought, from the only in classical conception. yet that doesn't suggest choice is pressured among presentism and eternalism, or that turning into has proved to be an most unlikely suggestion. it might probably also be requested no matter if presentism and eternalism relatively supply diversified ontological views in any respect. The writers of the final 4 chapters, partially III, disagree. They argue that relativity concept is incompatible with turning into and presentism. numerous of them get a hold of proposals to move past relativity, with a view to fix the clients of presentism.
