Title: Tobias Mueller
"Physics and its Significance for Philosophy of Time - Some Alternative
Since physics in philosophical discussions is often either neglected or
taken as instance that provides the fundamental ontological ground it is
the aim of the paper to present some considerations that point to the fact
that things are more complicated and that a differentiated point of view of
the status of physics will also offer more options in the discussions on
For this purpose the paper is divided into three sections. First I would
like to present some considerations coming from philosophy of science which
show that physics depends on some methodological assumptions that on the
one hand guarantee the big success of physics but on the other hand put
some constraints on the scope of physics. These considerations are relevant
for the status of time reversibility in physics.
Secondly I will point to some phenomena within physics which seem to
require a distinct arrow of time. And thirdly I will shift the focus to a
mostly neglected presupposition of physics as a scientific practice
implying the conditions of gaining rational knowledge.
