Real Time II extends and evolves DH Mellor's classic exploration of the philosophy of time, Real Time. This new book answers such basic metaphysical questions about time as: how do past, present and future differ, how are time and space related, what is change, is time travel possible? His Real Time dominated the philosophy of time for fifteen years. Real TIme II will do the same for the next twenty. GET /english/edu/Studying_at_SU/History_of_Literature.html HTTP/1.0

Industry Reviews

"Praise for "Real Time: Despite its philosophical sophistication, this work is highly recommended to anyone, from the general reader to the philosopher of science, who is seriously interested in metaphysical questions concerning time." -Choice "Real Time" is an important book that must be read by those who take the problems of time and tense seriously. ... Mellor's defence and elaboration of McTaggart's argument against the reality of A-characteristics is compelling." -Nous
