Editorial Reviews

`Outstanding new anthology ... this book - while "introductory" in its potential role as a prelude to more directed studies in time - includes papers that will be inaccessible to many undergraduates ... invaluable for a graduate seminar on time ... Le Poidevin and MacBeath have crafted animportant compilation of recent works useful for professionals and for advanced students in the metaphysics of time. As the newest volume in the Oxford Readings in Philosophy, this book makes an outstanding addition to an already distinguished series.'Teaching Philosophy
