Preview — Time and Space by Barry Dainton. Time and Space by Barry Dainton. These are just some of the fundamental questions addressed in Time and Space. Writing for a primary readership of advanced undergraduate and graduate philosophy students, Barry Barrry introduces the central ideas and arguments that make space and time such philosophically challenging topics. Although recognising spce many issues in the philosophy of time and space involve These are just some of the fundamental questions addressed in Time and Space.
Although recognising that many issues in the philosophy of time and space involve technical features of physics, Dainton has been careful to keep the conceptual issues accessible to students with little scientific or mathematical training.
Surveying historical debates and ideas at the forefront of contemporary thinking, the book is unrivaled in its coverage. Topics include McTaggart’s argument for the unreality of change; static, tensed, and dynamic time; time travel and causal arrows; space as timee, motion, and curved spac; as well as a non-technical introduction to the special theory of relativity and the key features of general relativity, spacetime, and strings.
Dainton also addresses the relationship between the philosophy of time tine broader human concerns involving actions, ethics, fatalism, and death.

Apr 09, Ray Gardener rated it really liked it. A good, strong review of various ideas explaining reality. It’s dense, even very dense in places, but then barty, I don’t have enough mathematical background to fully understand all of the points. Still, I found a daingon of things worth thinking about, and it’s good to read something really challenging once in a while.
