Samuel Baron / Kristie Miller

Characterizing Eternalism


ISBN: 978-3-88405-541-0

Price: €17.50 (including 19 % tax)


Eternalism is undeniably a popular view in metaphysics. But there is really no single view that the name ‘eternalism’ reliably picks out; rather, there is a cluster of theses, and the conjunction of some or all of these is variously designated by ‘eternalism’. In this paper, we pull apart this cluster of theses to present a more nuanced characterisation of the various different versions of eternalism that one finds. We gnash by briefly considering the relationship between eternalism and its chief rival: presentism. We present a new argument for the view that the ontological picture advocated by the eternalist is to be preferred to the ontological picture endorsed by presentists.
