From Change to Spacetime: An Eleatic Journey [Book Review]

Foundations of Science 18 (1):139-148 (2013)
Abstract
I present a formal ontological theory where the basic building blocks of the world can be either things or events. In any case, the result is a Parmenidean worldview where change is not a global property. What we understand by change manifests as asymmetries in the pattern of the world-lines that constitute 4-dimensional existents. I maintain that such a view is in accord with current scientific knowledge
