Space Time  Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments  
Spacetime, philosophy: space time is a threedimensional space with time as a fourth dimension. The fact that time is interpreted as a dimension distinguishes the spacetime from multidimensional mathematical spaces, in which time plays no role and which are therefore structured differently. In particular, the spacetime has no measure which can equally be used for spatial distances as well as for time measurements. See also relativity theory, fourdimensionalism, world lines. _____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
