|Title:||Zeno and Descartes influence on experimental method in physics|
Ristić, Vladimir M.
|Journal:||Kragujevac Journal of Science|
|Abstract:||In this paper, we are comparing Greek and modern methods of research, and finding that after giving identical answers to Ontological and Gnosio-Ontological postulates, the two thoughts are going apart in answering to Existence-Interaction postulate. Greeks gave priority to existence, while modern thought considers interaction to be a priori. This results in two formulations of causality: Greek thought - Every object has its cause; Modern thought - Every change of the state of object has its cause. Using this analysis, we show that modern thought through Quantum Mechanics is going back to Greek approach. So, it seems that modern method of research closes the cycle. But examining differences of the two thoughts, concerning experimental approach we show also that in Quantum Mechanics two approaches are parallel, leaving the question open.|
