Cosmological and Psychological Time by Yuval Dolev, Michael Roubach

By Yuval Dolev, Michael Roubach

This booklet examines the various faces of philosophy of time, together with the metaphysical features, average technological know-how concerns, and the awareness of time. It brings jointly the several methodologies of investigating the philosophy of time. It does to be able to counter the becoming fragmentation of the sector in regards to discussions, and the present cleavage among analytic and continental traditions in philosophy. The book’s multidirectional method of the idea of time contributes to a greater knowing of time's metaphysical, actual and phenomenological elements. It is helping make clear the presuppositions underpinning the analytic and continental traditions within the philosophy of time and gives ways that the variations among them could be bridged.

This way, the frame dependence of the simultaneity relationship is neutralized. If the present contracts to a point, the question which distant events are co-present with a given present event does not arise. Almost 40 years after Stein put forth his suggestion, Pooley and Gibson (2006) develop what they call the “Stein present” (Savitt, who also toys with the idea, prefers the name “Alexandroff present”). Here’s how this present is construed. First, it 24 Y. Dolev is conceived to be temporally extended.

Stein too failed to appreciate that to interpret relativity what is needed is not more geometry but more phenomenology. A more careful phenomenological inquiry would have revealed that tense is not about the “ontological superiority” that generates the difficulties in the relativistic setting, and would have led to a conception of tense that can be fitted rather naturally into such a setting. 4 Distant Events Here’s our dilemma once again. Either tense and passage are part of the fundamental structure of reality or else our apprehension of reality is, as Leibniz said, incomplete and confused.

2 Relativity, Global Tense and Phenomenology 33 Let me close this section with a brief comment on Stein. Stein’s classic work is the soil from which both the spatially restricted present and the notion of “becoming” grow (the notion figures centrally in Stein’s own work, of course). But the spatially restricted present is underpinned by a desire to reintegrate the dynamism of passage into Minkowski space-time, while Dieks’ “becoming” is invoked in an attempt to legitimize the static block universe.
