Transcendental Tense: D.H. Mellor
Abstract:Kant’s claim that our knowledge of time is transcendental in his sense, while false of time itself, is true of tenses, i.e. of the locations of events and other temporal entities in McTaggart’s A series. This fact can easily, and I think only, be explained by taking time itself to be real but tenseless.
