About the Author:

James Harrington is an Instructor in Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago, USA.

Review:

“Thorough surveys of core philosophical topics are rare treasures, and this is one. Harrington (Loyola Univ. Chicago) intends this comprehensive treatment of time to enrich the study of key issues in metaphysics, logic, philosophy of language, epistemology, and philosophy of science. ... Harrington enriches each chapter with brief supplemental discussions of major philosophers' thinking on time, applications for theories of time, and technical notes that explain specific terms and ideas. Each chapter also offers a study exercise and a set of discussion questions to inspire student work between or during classes and a bibliography of primary and secondary resources for further reading. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates and graduate students.” - CHOICE
