Synopsis: Michael Tooley presents a major new philosophical theory of the nature of time. He argues for a dynamic conception of the universe, according to which past, present, and future are not merely subjective features of experience: past and present are real, while the future is not. The key to understanding the nature of time is to understand the relation between time and causation. Time, Tense, and Causation is a landmark treatment of one of the oldest and most fascinating of intellectual problems; it is rich in sophisticated and stimulating discussions of a variety of metaphysical issues.

About the Author: Michael Tooley is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He held positions previously at the Australian National University, the University of Western Australia, and the University of Miami. He has been a visiting professor at Stanford, Wichita State, and Utah. He is the author of Abortion and Infanticide (OUP 1983) and Causation: A Realist Approach (OUP 1987). He co-edited with Ernest Sosa the volume on Causation (1993) in the Oxford Readings in Philosophy series.
