From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The word eternalism has at least three meanings:
- In philosophy, Eternalism is a philosophical approach to the ontological nature of time, which takes the view that all points in time are equally "real", as opposed to the presentist idea that only the present is real.
- Eternalism is a position in phenomenology that the world must be seen as static and fixed. This worldview is in opposition to mobilism, which states that the world must be seen as in a constant state of flux. These worldviews are particularly relevant to paradoxology.
- Eternalism is the common English translation of sassatavada, the doctrine of unchanging being rejected by Buddhism.
