Series Abstract: This masterclass consists of three paired lectures and discussions on the cutting edge of research in the philosophical foundations of general relativity, our best current theory of space, time, and gravitation. Topics include the ontological relationship between space, time, and matter, the concept of energy, and time and causality, including black holes. Each session will be based on chapters of my forthcoming book, Foundations of General Relativity (CUP), that will be circulated among attendees.
