What is physical absolutism?

Question asked by: knowitall

In general, an absolutist theory is one that holds some entity or property is absolute - it does not admit of change. In physics therefore, the theory relates to space and time and holds that they are absolutes - it is the classic Newtonian framework, that held sway right up until the relativistic theory introduced by Einstein, which superceded the classic Newtonian framework.
