Author’s Abstract

  1. This chapter discusses some aspects of the relation between temporal experience and the A versus B debate.
  2. To begin with, I provide an overview of the A versus B debate and, following Baron et al. (2015), distinguish between two B-theoretic responses to the A-theoretic argument from experience, veridicalism and illusionism.
  3. I then argue for veridicalism over illusionism, by examining our (putative) experiences as of presentness and as of time passing.
  4. I close with some remarks on the relation between veridicalism and a deflationary view of the A versus B debate. I suggest that the deflationary view can provide further support for veridicalism.
