|Space, philosophy: various discussions deal, among others, with the question whether the space is absolute or whether empty space is possible. In different sciences, multi-dimensional spaces with certain properties are used to better calculate like Hilbert spaces in the theory of relativity or multidimensional spaces in mathematical nodal theory. No ontological assumptions are made. See also substantivalism, relativism, movement, absoluteness, compactness, conceptual space, dimensions, logical space, four-dimensionalism._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Space / Bennett: (> Spinoza): Body: properties of regions - their respective properties are not identical but "realized as" - reconstruction of bodily properties . based on prop. of regions: e.g. region of space slimy *: there are slimy (without star) things - the whole matter is a field that is identical to the space - Esfeld: but not space = field - Esfeld: there is not even a conceptual difference between space and matter! - No absolute space without matter (holism of space)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
