Philosophy of Time

Here’s a very crisp articulation by Jonathan Tallant explaining McTaggart’s famous A and B series of time and more besides. It was the late Michael Dummett (Truth and Other Enigmas, 1978) who made me want to take another look at McTaggart’s argument, surprisingly not referenced in the SEP entry. Here’s McTaggart’s original paper and a freely available commentary paper on Dummett’s McTaggart. Oakeshott, by the way, attended McTaggart’s lectures at Cambridge, lectures pitched at the talented philosophical novice.
