- Our perceptual experiences as of change over time seem to be accompanied by the sense that time flows. The sense of flow is widely regarded as one of the most elusive aspects of temporal experience.
- In this essay, I shall develop a novel account of its nature.
- In Section 1, I shall give an initial characterization of the sense of flow as the sense that the present changes — in short, as the sense of replacement. Further, I shall specify the type of account of the sense of replacement to be developed: since the sense that the present changes will be assumed to be grounded in the perceptual representation that the present changes, my focus will be to explain the perceptual representation that the present changes.
- In Section 2, I shall develop an account of the synchronic perceptual representation of the present.
- In Section 3, I shall develop an account of the diachronic perceptual representation of the present as changing.
