Author’s Abstract

  1. In his contribution to this issue, "Dowe (Phil) - A and B Theories of Closed Time", Phil Dowe argues that A- and B-theories of time are equally compatible with closed time, though it is commonly supposed that only B-theories are compatible with it.
  2. With some reservations to be noted below I agree with Dowe’s general conclusion, but in the course of his argument there are a number of false statements and misrepresentations of detail that require comment.
  3. I will not be able to deal with all of them in this brief note.
