PHIL 31.05 Time, Truth and Fate

If it’s already true that I’ll die in an avalanche tomorrow or else that I won’t—logic says it’s one or the other—is it pointless to take precautions? Is everything fated to happen as it does? Is the future open? Can we change the past? Is anything real apart from the present? Does the present exist? Does the truth about time require different rules of logic? We’ll draw on sources from Aristotle to today.

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.
