Abstract

Niko Strobach: The Moment of Change. A Systematic History in the Philosophy of Space and Time Dordrecht/Boston/London: Kluwer Academic Publishers 1998 (New Synthese Historical Library, vol. 45) When does a change happen? How is change and the time of changing to be described both logically and ontologically? These are the questions at the centre of the problem of the moment of change (MOC). Strobach’s book is the first book-length study reviewing the discussion of this long-standing philosophical riddle. Whitehead’s remark on the history of philosophy as a footnote to Plato applies here, too (20): Strobach starts off with a thoroughgoing discussion of Plato’s doctrine of exaiphnes in Parm. 155e–157b (20–47). The profoundest discussion of the MOC, however, is in Strobach’s eyes to be found in Aristotle’s Physics (47–83), which had a strong influence both on the medieval logic of tense and time (84–110) and the modern discussion of the MOC. Some paragraphs on the MOC in Mendelssohn and Kant (who touch on the MOC within a discussion on the eternity of the human soul; 112–121) and Schopenhauer (121–123) conclude the first, historical part.
