Translated to English with Google Translate by Thomas E. Miles
The concepts of space and time, developed in the process of scientific cognition, belong to the fundamental categories of science. They cannot be deduced with the help of logical evidence from simpler positions, but are only described in connection with other concepts in the practice of all human activity and in the course of conducting targeted measurements, of which astronomical observations can also be a part. Space and Time as categories of materialistic philosophy took shape in their time on the basis of the achievements of classical mechanics.
