Book description

This fully revised edition of this standard work on the philosophy of time and space includes two new chapters on Zeno’s paradoxes, new material on dynamic time, speculative contemporary developments in physics, and time and consciousness, making the second edition, once again, unrivalled in its breadth of coverage. Surveying both historical debates and the ideas of modern physics, Barry Dainton evaluates the central arguments in a clear and unintimidating way and is careful to keep the conceptual issues throughout comprehensible to students with little scientific or mathematical training. The book makes the philosophy of space and time accessible for anyone trying to come to grips with the complexities of this challenging subject. With well over 100 original line illustrations and a full glossary of terms, the book has the requirements of students firmly in sight and will continue to serve as an essential textbook for philosophy of time and space courses.

Reviews

"An impressive work which deserves a wide audience, and by means of which philosophers generally, and not just their students, can hope to bring themselves up to speed with what has been going on in an area that has been regarded as central to metaphysics."

Graham Nerlich
