Source: Philosophical Studies, Volume 122, Number 3, February 2005 , pp. 213-225(13)
Abstract:This paper defends three theses: (i) that presentism is either trivial or untenable; (ii) that the debate between tensed and tenseless theories of time is not about the status of presentism; and (iii) that there is no temporal analogue of the modal thesis of actualism.
