Paper Summary


Author’s Introduction

  1. Some philosophers believe that the passage of time is a real phenomenon. And some of them find a reason to believe this when they attend to features of their conscious experience.
  2. In fact this "argument from experience" is supposed to be one of the main arguments for passage. What exactly does this argument look like? Is it any good?
  3. There are in fact many different arguments from experience. I am not sure I understand them all. In this paper I want to talk about the three most interesting arguments that I do understand. I am going to argue that all three of them fail.
