The aim of this series is to bring together important recent writings in major areas of philosophical inquiry, selected from a variety of sources, mostly periodicals, which may not be conveniently available to university students or general readers. This volume presents a set of readings which introduce the central topics in the philosophy of time. Two of the essays have been written specially for this volume. The editors summarize the background to the debate and show how issues in the philosophy of time are related to other branches of philosophy. This book should be of interest to students of metaphysics or the philosophy of physics (advanced undergraduate and graduate); professional philosophers and scientists interested in time; and general readers investigating the philosophical background to the current popularity of the subject.
