An Introduction to the Philosophy of Time
Time specialists Sam Baron and Kristie Miller are combining their research in the book An Introduction to the Philosophy of Time and consider a number of philosophical questions. Time seems to be woven into the fabric of our lives. Everything we do, we do in time. Yet time itself is elusive. What is time? Is time real, and if it is real, what is it like? Does it flow, or is it static? Can we travel in time the way we can travel in space, and if not, why not? What can we learn about time from physics, and what, if anything, does metaphysics have to teach us about time?
