PHIL 1.08 Philosophy of Time & Time Travel

On the one hand, time is completely familiar.  On the other, it is a total mystery.  As you might expect, the combination makes for good philosophy.  In this course, we will study a variety of philosophical puzzles concerning the nature of time.  Is time an illusion?  Does time pass?  Is the present special?  Is time travel  possible?  Do the past and future exist? Does time have a direction? What is spacetime?  What are the special and general theories of relativity? What do they imply about the nature of time?



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
