Presentism and the problem of cross-time relations

    Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)Researchpeer-review

    Abstract

    Presentism is the view that only present entities exist. Recently, several authors have asked the question whether presentism is able to account for cross-time relations, ie, roughly, relations between entities existing at different times. In this paper I claim that this question is to be answered in the affirmative. To make this claim plausible, I consider four types of cross-time relation and show how each can be accommodated without difficulty within the metaphysical framework of presentism.
