Description

Quentin Smith defends a tensed theory of time, which contends that temporal determinations also include metaphysical properties of pastness, presentness and futurity. He challenges, through a careful analysis of contemporary writers, many of the leading arguments for alternative viewpoints, and concludes with an argument that the special theory of relativity is not a theory about time, but about the light-relations among physical events.show more
