Paper Summary

Author’s Abstract

  1. It has been suggested that there is something worrisome, puzzling or incomprehensible about the sorts of causal loops sometimes involved in backwards time travel.
  2. This paper disentangles two distinct puzzles and evaluates whether they provide us reason to find backwards time travel incomprehensible, inexplicable or otherwise worrisome.
  3. The paper argues that they provide no such reason.
