Author’s Abstract

  1. This essay is an introduction to Time and Reality I, the first part of a special issue dedicated to the philosophy of time.
  2. Here I outline a number of new trends in philosophical theorizing about time, detailing how the various contributions fit into the picture.
  3. I argue that there has been a potentially misleading tendency to separate the debate over the passage of time from the debate over the reality of tense. This has obscured a number of interesting philosophical questions.
  4. One of the aims of this volume is to bring these two issues together, where they belong. I argue that many contributions to it go in the right direction.
  5. The contributions to this volume also establish uncharted philosophical junctures between Metaphysics, Aesthetics, Morality, and the Philosophy of Mind.
