Author’s Abstract

  1. Dynamic theories of time typically commit to the claim that “time passes”.
  2. In this paper I develop a version of the ‘no alternate possibilities’ argument in order to show that time does not pass, but that this is no threat to dynamic theories of time.


For the full text, see Tallant - Temporal Passage and the 'no alternate possibilities' argument.
