Summary
"The aim of this series is to bring together important recent writings in major areas of philosophical inquiry, selected from a variety of sources, mostly periodicals, which may not be conveniently available to the university student or the general reader. The editors of each volume contribute an introductory essay on the items chosen and on the questions with which they deal. A selective bibliography is appended as a guide to further reading." "This volume presents a balanced set of readings which introduce the central topics in the philosophy of time. It is the first introductory anthology on the subject to appear for many years; two of the essays are specially written for this collection. In their introduction the editors summarize the background to the debate, and show how issues in the philosophy of time are related to other branches of philosophy."--BOOK JACKET
