History and Philosophy of Physics


On the Noumenal Realm of Physics

Authors: Robert Spoljaric

Can we know what is really real in physics? More precisely are there synthetic a priori propositions to describe the noumenal realm of physics? It will be shown that the answer is ‘yes’, and this has profound implications for Kant’s philosophy as Kant himself believed the noumenal realm is strictly unknowable by us. Now, the classical concept of mass plays a fundamental role in physics even though no one knows what mass really is. We shall resolve this fundamental ontological problem by using mass for the final time to reveal the noumenal realm of physics, which is a new paradigm of Relativity. The evolution from classical physics to this mass-free paradigm of Relativity is inevitable with implications for the totality of physics as understood today. Kant’s synthetic a priori propositions are the unambiguous foundations of this new paradigm. To answer our questions above a knowledge of pre-1925 physics is required and can be found in any standard textbook [1], with the physical arguments already presented in [2] and [3].
