Author’s Abstract

  1. McTaggart famously argued that time is unreal. Today, almost no one agrees with his conclusion. But his argument remains the locus classicus for both the A-theory and the B-theory of time.
  2. I want to show how McTaggart’s argument provided the impetus for both of these opposing views of the nature of time. I will also show why I support what I take to be the correct view of the nature of time.
