What is... time?

Talk by Manuel Tecchiolli

Date: 21.12.21  Time: 16.30 - 17.30  Room:

This talk is an introduction to the philosophy of time. We will discuss the main ideas behind the modern conceptions of time and give the basic, although necessary, knowledge in order to be able to understand the principal theories of time that the philosophical literature offers: A- and B-frameworks, the meaning of change and McTaggart's paradox, relativistic McTaggart's paradox and the unreality of time, asymmetries within time and the common idea of entropy as an arrow of time.
