A Philosophical Introduction to the Experience of Time

Sean Enda Power

Abstract


In this introduction to contemporary conceptions of time and change, I investigate what our experience of time, that is, our experience of change, seems to be and ask whether or not we can say that how it seems could match the reality. My conclusion is that more recent contemporary conceptions of time can do this but that more intuitive or traditional conceptions cannot. Thus, I conclude that more contemporary are preferable for research into time-consciousness.

Keywords


Experience of time, metaphysics of time, time-consciousness, retention theory, A-theory, B-theory, temporal illusions
