The very crux of the Bergson's argument is not existence or measurement, because simultaneity does not exist without a frame of reference.

As a philosopher, Bergson here shows a transcendental duration as being the frame of reference; to that end, he introduces a new measurement to confound the other two measurements/5. Duration and Simultaneity has always held a special place amongst Bergson's writings. As profound as it is perplexing, its challenge to the scientific approach to time - through the concept of 'lived time' - remains as relevant today as it did 80 years ago.

Earlier in the spring Albert Einstein had come to the French Society of Philosophy and briefly replied to a short speech made by Bergson.

Our two physicists will therefore naturally find that the time for the journey from O to A, com- puted by means of the two clocks located at O and A respec- tively, is equal to half the round trip’s total time, as computed on the clock at O alone.

In the public debate between the two, it was generally held that Einstein ‘won’. But there aren’t really winners or losers in any debate about time. The way we perceive time is surely a core perception, which affects all other perceptions.

Einstein, Bergson, and Time Bergson’s studies on time, space, duration and simultaneity in the context of Einstein’s theories were mature when the critical encounter happened.

For Bergson, who had developed a philosophical framework for time and duration, such an analysis was on his natural philosophical itinerary. Through original speculations on the surprisingly complementary concepts of simultaneity and delay, and new interpretations of the great philosophers of time, this book proposes an innovative theory of staggered time.

In the early 20th Century, Bergson and Husserl (following Einstein) made Simultaneity-what it means for events to occur at the same time-a. Duration and Simultaneity deals with one of the great Bergsonian themes, time. A central contention is that science and philosophy alike systematically misrepresent the nature of time.

Bergson suggests that the traditional association between the model of space and time. As regards simultaneity: in Einstein’s book, his attempt to justify the relativity of time rests on the analysis of the concept of simultaneity. Einstein begins this book by questioning the traditional concepts of time and space, and asserting that these traditional ideas are in conflict with the idea that light propagates at a constant Continue reading Simultaneity and.

In andHendrik Lorentz used a mathematical method called "local time" t' = t – v x/c 2 for explaining the negative aether drift experiments.

However, Lorentz gave no physical explanation of this effect. This was done by Henri Poincaré who already emphasized in the conventional nature of simultaneity and who argued that it is convenient to postulate the.

The two men dominated most discussions about time during the first half of the twentieth century. Thanks to Einstein, time had been finally “deposed from its high seat,” brought down from the lofty peak of philosophy to the practical down-to-earth territory of physics.

Summary Problems on the Postulates and Simultaneity 1 Problem: Someone on a moving train on the earth measures the speed of a meteor in space to be 5×10 6 m/s.

Someone in outer space measures the speed to be 4×10 6 m/s. Light travels at a speed \(c\) in both frames, and because time is the distance divided by speed, the time measured by the astronaut is \[\Delta t_{0} = \frac{2D}{c}.\label{}\] This time has a separate name to distinguish it from the time measured by the Earth-bound observer.

Abstract. InEinstein and Bergson publicly discussed the nature of time. I argue that this debate, which pivoted on the question of whether there is one time or a plurality of times, and especially the phenomenological stance promoted in it by Bergson, makes for an illuminating context against which to read Stein’s s literary thinking on by: 2.
