Augustin Newton

(NEWTON, 1984, pp. 8-9) Ademais, Newton also does not agree to Toms Saint de Aquino (1225-1274) that it deals with to the time and the things created in the time with sprouting from the will God. With effect, according to Newton, the absolute time cannot is tied with the external things, but also because always it existed and its flow never can be modified. That is, when Tomaz de Aquino deals with God as Creative of the things and of the beginning of the existence of the time it is possible to perceive that its philosophy is contradictory with the one of Newton, as emphasizes Compendium of Theology. For disagreeing with the time as certain sensible and relative measure, that Newton also does not agree to the concept of Saint Augustin de Hipona (354-430) of time, according to book XI of Confessions.

Therefore, as Augustin, as already he was displayed previously in this article, the time is psychological and possesss certain distenso (p.224) and alone exists future and past facts, being able to be seen only the time present. For conseguinte the time for Newton cannot be created by the Creator, a time that being absolute, true and mathematical and mathematical is invariant and perpetual. In this point it seems that Newton criticizes Plato, Saint Augustin de Hipona and Santo Toms de Aquino, who defends that the time was born with the creation of of the deity when the immutability of the time is mentioned. But with respect to the movement, Newton distinguishes the absolute time from the relative one of astronomy of Plato because, according to that one, the changes of the bodies vulgarly are considered with equal measures. With effect, it emphasizes that the movement of the bodies can more be sped up or be delayed, however the flow of the absolute time remains unalterable. In this way, it seems that Newton criticizes the philosophy of Plato and the disciple of whom basically they defend the movement of the bodies as main agent to measure the time.
