Bringing together philosophers, logicians and linguists, Telling Time provides, in one handy volume, a short collection of historically informed, systematically comprehensive and critically argued articles devoted to some of the major issues of the contemporary debate on the relationship between time and language. Readers will learn about temporal proper names and localising temporal expressions, monstrous eternalism, how natural language codes temporal meaning, and how tensed beliefs can be explained. The book also contains a detailed introduction presenting some fundamental concepts, terms, methods, and claims of contemporary philosophy and linguistics on the subject of time, and proposes a list of titles for further study. Scholars and students in logic, linguistics, philosophy and epistemology alike will find this volume a useful aid to their current research.
