This volume provides a balanced set of reviews which introduce the central topics in the philosophy of time. This is the first introductory anthology on the subject to appear for many years; the contributors are distinguished, and two of the essays are specially written for this collection. In their introduction, the editors summarize the background to the debate, and show the relevance of issues in the philosophy of time for other branches of philosophy and for science. Contributors include J.M.E. McTaggart, Arthur N. Prior, D.H. Mellor, Sydney Shoemaker, Graeme Forbes, Lawrence Sklar, Michael Dummett, David Lewis, W.H. Newton-Smith, and Anthony Quinton.

About the Author:

Review:


"It is about time a book of this magnitude came into the picture. Very timely. It covers the topic well."--Scott Engel, Miles Community College


"A wonderful collection of stimulating essays which are sure to hold the interest of my students."--Micheal W. Palmer, Bluefield College


"This is an excellent single volume treatment of a most important subject. It nicely combines both classical and contemporary approaches. The price is right, too."--Robert P. Tucker, Florida Southern College


"Though philosophers have long attended to the profound implications physics has had upon our understanding of time, interest again appears to be growing in metaphysical issues of time as well. Le Poidevin and MacBeath's outstanding new anthology-presenting influential viewpoints current within the metaphysics rather than physics of time-not only reflects this trend, but should provide a powerful impetus to it....An important compilation of recent works useful for professionals and for advanced students in the metaphysics of time. As the newest volume in the Oxford Readings in Philosophy, this book makes an outstanding addition to an already distinguished series."--Teaching Philosophy
