Author’s Abstract

  1. Aristotle famously claims that there is no time without change.
  2. Bill Newton-Smith (W.H. Newton-Smith), in his book The Structure of Time, refers to this claim as 'Aristotle's principle'.
  3. Sydney Shoemaker begins his article "Shoemaker (Sydney) - Time Without Change" with a discussion of Aristotle's argument for this claim.
  4. But what is Aristotle's argument? Why does he think that there is no time without change?
  5. In this paper I shall argue that this is something modern interpreters have misunderstood.
