Document Type


Publication Date



In this lecture, Katherine Brading considers such fundamental questions as "What is there?" and "How, if at all, can what there is undergo change?" She explores the relationships between matter, space, and time by means of an approach to physics that has its origins in Newton's engagement with Descartes' philosophy.

This lecture took place on Nov. 4, 2011 at The University of Western Ontario as part of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy Speaker Series.
