Summary/Abstract: The goal of this paper is to achieve an understanding of space and time as they are presented in Constantin Noica’s book Twenty-Seven Levels of the Real. Although Noica is apparently operating in a formal way, the construction being guided by three classical tables of categories, he manages to do an ontological and dynamic interpretation of the latter. Noica proceeds in a thematic dialectical way, space and time being two of the levels through which the real is determined. Space and time are changing themselves through different stages (spatial centre, spatial field, spatial horizon, space, respectively kairotic time, time of growth and fulfilment, time of limited existence, high time [vreme], cosmic time). So understood, space and time are “melted” into another step of the real, namely modality. I will try to explain these terms, the mechanism of this dynamic and the relationship between the classical categories and the two levels of the real.
