A core topic in metaphysics, time is also central to issues in the philosophy of science, the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of religion. Debates in the Metaphysics of Time explores these close philosophical connections and tackles the contemporary debates using an interactive approach. Contributors put forward their views before commenting on the ideas of other contributors and defending against objections. Divided into `metaphysics and time', `consciousness and time' and `God, time and human freedom', chapters are organized around key questions, including: * How are we to understand the passage of time, or the 'change' an event seems to undergo when it moves from the future to the present and then recedes into the more and more distant past? * Can we only be directly aware of what is momentary if we directly experience change and duration? * How is God related to time and is divine foreknowledge and human freedom compatible? For students and researchers looking to understand the latest arguments in the philosophy of time, Debates in the Metaphysics of Time provides an original, up-to-date and accessible account of past, present and future debates.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This lively and diverse collection discusses several central issues in contemporary philosophy of time and argues for a number of novel conclusions ... Oaklander has once again succeeded in editing a volume that anyone working in the philosophy of time is encouraged to read. * Analysis *
Consisting entirely of new material, and with chapters on realism, succession, consciousness and freedom, this book provides a number of helpful insights into contemporary discussions of the metaphysics of time. The material will provide scholars and students alike with a useful resource to help them further explore the nature of time. -- Jonathan Tallant, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of Nottingham, UK
