A Future for Presentism

A Future for Presentism

How can we talk meaningfully about the past if it does not exist to be talked about? What gives time its direction? Is time travel possible? Presentism, the view that only the present exists, was a much neglected position in the philosophy of time for a number of years. This book contributes to the debate on the future of presentism.
