Between psychology and physics: Schlick’s Philosophy of Time

In this paper an attempt is made at an integrated account of Moritz Schlick’s philosophy of time. In particular, we attempt to reconstruct Schlick’s ideas about the relationship between time’s objective features and the subjective experience thereof. In order to do so, it is not enough to look at Schlick’s often studied and cited works on the Theory of Relativity (“Die Philosophische Bedeutung des Relativitätsprinzips” (1915), and ”Raum und Zeit in der gegenwärtigen Physik. Zur Einführung in das Verständnis der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie“ (1917)).
