PHIL 50.28 Philosophy of Time

In this seminar we will explore the nature of time and temporal phenomena. Topics include: Does time pass? Do the past and future exist? What light does special relativity shed on the nature of the present? Is an object fully present at a time, or only a temporal part of it? What explains the temporal asymmetries of our experience? Could the world be fundamentally non-temporal?

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:TMV

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.
