Eckhart on Space and Time

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


While scholarship, particularly the contributions of Niklaus Largier, has given us already a good insight into Meister Eckhart’s innovative views on time and the relation between time and space, the fundamental axes of our categorical understanding of our existence in the world still needs to be explored. This essay discusses Eckhart’s rather understudied Parisian Question IV (Whether any motion without end implies a contradiction?) in light of his other writings and of those by his teachers Albert the Great and Thomas Aquinas.
