Matthew Davidson

Presentism and Grounding Past Truths


ISBN: 978-3-88405-545-8

Price: €9.50 (including 19 % tax)


A number of people have objected to presentism on the basis that on it there is not a grounding for truths about the past. In this paper, I set out the objection to presentism from truthmaking, and I survey and evaluate several attempts to respond to the problem.
