Editorial Reviews


"The book is clearly impressive in its scope and originality. In presenting the debate between the tensed and tenseless theories in an entirely new light, it provides a serious challenge to all who participate in it." Michele C. M. Beer, International Philosophical Quarterly

Book Description

Current approaches to the question of our position in time SH such as those seen in disputes between tensed and tenseless theories, and between realist and anti-realist treatments of past and future SH misconstrue the relation between metaphysics and ethics, and the way to characterise the kind of sense which tensed language has. In this original and thought-provoking study, David Cockburn argues that the notion of 'reasons for emotion' must have a central place in any account of meaning, and that the present should have no priority in our understanding of tense.
