Abstract

The concept of space may be one of the most widely discussed in the history of human thought. Innumerable philosophers and many scientists (although acting as true ?natural philosophers?) have dedicated some of their works to defining space and exploring its properties, trying to elucidate the qualities that appertain to its nature. A common issue of debate, for example, is whether space is an ontological entity itself, or simply a conceptual framework needed in order to think about the world.
