Review


Bardon's
A Brief History of the Philosophy of Time provides an engaging, clear, and succinct introduction to the philosophy of time. It is ideal as an introduction to the topic for undergraduates or, used in conjunction with sources it cites, in a more advanced class for postgraduates... Bardon
consistently presents conceptually difficult ideas within philosophy and physics in a way that is accessible to undergraduate students. A particularly nice feature of Bardon's text is its integration of history with contemporary debates... I highly recommend this book as a text to introduce students
to the central issues in the philosophy of time."
--
The Philosophical Quarterly


"Adrian Bardon manages to cover a truly impressive array of issues in the philosophy of time ranging from an overview of some of the historical precursors of current ideas to a discussion of the most recent developments in the areaEL. Bardon does an excellent job of making the issues thoroughly
accessible whilst at the same time not shying away from the interesting and more difficult questions. Because he manages to walk this tightrope so well, the book would make an excellent resource for undergraduates, but would be equally at home in the bag of a graduate student."--Kristie Miller,
Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


"The book is a real winner. It's accessible, lively and packed with good philosophy. More than that, despite being introductory, it really is on the cutting edge of philosophy of time."--Craig Callender, University of California, San Diego, and editor of the
Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Time
and author of
Introducing Time


"Bardon has written a superb little book on the philosophy of time. Though this book is, as tits title states, a brief history, it is packed with marvelously lucid explanations of the central problems and issues relevant to the subject, including philosophy, physics, and phenomenology. Highly
recommended." -L.B. McHenry, California State University - Northridge,
CHOICE


"Adrian Bardon's
A Brief History of the Philosophy of Time provides a quick and clear introduction to the philosophy of time, along with accessible outlines of relevant topics from general philosophy, the philosophy of physics, and the philosophy of mind, each chapters preceded by a well-designed
summary...the comprehensiveness, clarity, and agility of this book are remarkable. Adrian Bardon, who specializes on the philosophy of space and time, has produced a valuable resource for students of time and science teachers." --
