Summary

First published in 1998, this volume responded to and evaluated criticisms of McTaggart’s atemporal philosophy of time. Established philosophical positions on time had positioned themselves in relation to either the A Series (past, present and future) or the B Series (earlier and later). McTaggart considered both series untenable and proposed his own, atemporal C Series. Beginning with an overview of McTaggart’s position, Gerald Rochelle attempts to reinforce the seriousness of, and think beyond, McTaggart’s attempt to describe a world without time through an assessment of McTaggart’s criticisms and his suggested alternative. Rochelle argues that McTaggart’s atemporal world constitutes a strong foundation for a new theory on time which breaks away from the existing philosophical models of temporality.
