Is Space Discrete? An Inquiry into the Reality of Planck Length and its Philosophical Implications
Keywords:Planck Length, Discrete Space, Loop Quantum Gravity, Infinity, Husserl
In this paper, I examine the philosophical assumptions subtending the newly emerging concept of the smallest possible chunk of discrete space ” Planck length, employing the method of historical analysis, hermeneutics, and phenomenological investigation.With the metaphysical presuppositions undergirding Planck length revealed, I attempt a discussion of the philosophical implications of the discrete space.
