What does the flow of time consist of? (in Polish)

Main Article Content

Jerzy Gołosz

Abstract

The aim of the paper is to show the difficulties with which we are faced when we try to explain what the flow of time consists of. The paper proposes a solution to this problem based on the notion of the dynamic existence of things and the developing the idea of absolute becoming. It is assumed that our fundamental metaphysical theories should satisfy conditions of coherence, simplicity and richness of content similar to those satisfied by theories in the empirical sciences.
