Bibliography on space & time Carlos Gracia Zamacona

N.B. This bibliography is not objective nor comprehensive: I have just included references that I found useful, independently from their theoretical approach. Some works are much more general in scope than the subject of a given paragraph, but, in my opinion, they contribute essentially to understand or reconsider that specific subject.
