when people (no physicists (-: ) talk about time they usually use the terms: " time flow slow/fast" and more as such. now my question what is time philosophically for us? by physically i know that there is the time duration in relativity: t'=t/(1-v^2/c^2)^0.5 which means that time looks to be "running" fast to the one who is v=0 with respect to the one whose v~=0 but i want to know what do us humans picture time? 1. my answer that our picture of time is like of flowing river (but this picture is possesed not only by me but also by scientists [but they arent philosophers (-: ]). 2. now let's investigate the statements which are given above: "does time flow slow/fast?"- this is from the point of view of humans (not physics) a feeling which changes from a person to person according to the situation he's at. ps i think the roll of philosophy in time (or metaphysics) is to say something about time and humans the relationships that without time all motion and us wouldnt occur. i hope it's not a crap.
