    Abstract

    This paper supplies a synopsis of a longer paper "What Can We Learn About the Ontology of Space and Time from the Theory of Relativity?" Candidate morals must satisfy four requirements: novelty, modesty, realism and robustness. The surviving morals express entanglements of space and time; of spacetime and matter; and of spacetime and causation. Many popular morals do not survive.
