Yuval Dolev

A Real Present without Presentism


ISBN: 978-3-88405-550-2

Preis: €12.50 (inkl. 19 % MwSt.)


I argue that while tense and passage are features of the fundamental structure of reality, the essence of the differences between being past, present or future cannot be captured by appealing to an ontological analysis. Thus, while eternalists are wrong in denying the reality of tense and passage, presentists are misguided in arguing that what makes certain events present is their being “more real” than those that are not, and that passage consists in the successive conferring of some “ontological superiority” on events as they become present. In order to understand tense and passage we must turn from ontology to phenomenology, and study the experiential manifestations of tense. I propose that the tensed features of our firsthand experiences figure as hinges for our conception of tense but that, despite the reliance on experience, the conception of tense that emerges from a phenomenological inquiry constitutes a form of realism about it.
