16962 | Whitehead replaced points with extended regions [Quine on Whitehead] |
14160 | Space is the extension of 'point', and aggregates of points seem necessary for geometry [Russell] |
18970 | The concept of a 'point' makes no sense without the idea of absolute position [Quine] |
17811 | The natural conception of points ducks the problem of naming or constructing each point [Kreisel] |
17707 | We should regard space as made up of many tiny pieces [Mares on Feynman] |
18257 | Why should the limit of measurement be points, not intervals? [Dummett] |
3334 | Rationalists see points as fundamental, but empiricists prefer regions [Benardete,JA] |
18223 | In theories of fields, space-time points or regions are causal agents [Field,H] |
8269 | Points are limits of parts of space, so parts of space cannot be aggregates of them [Lowe] |
4227 | Surfaces, lines and points are not, strictly speaking, parts of space, but 'limits', which are abstract [Lowe] |
17708 | Maybe space has points, but processes always need regions with a size [Mares] |
10863 | Cantor proved that three dimensions have the same number of points as one dimension [Clegg] |
