The Nature of Time (The Philosopher’s Zone)


What is time? Does it really flow or is that a mere illusion? Could time exist without change? Are the past and future real? Does time have a beginning? Is time travel logically possible? These are just a few of the fundamental questions and philosophical issues which arise regarding time, some of which are discussed in this program, including the main philosophical theories (e.g. presentism and eternalism).

This is from an ABC National radio show called the Philosopher’s Zone a few years back.
