Ya, in the space of three or so weeks I send you to Philosophy Bites, a podcast interviewing today’s “top philosophers”. I guess I like the show huh? The latest show is very interesting as the host Nigel Warburton interviews D.H. Mellor, a philosopher specializing on “time.” We normally think of events happening in time. And that time is essentially tensed (that there is past, present, future). D.H. Mellor argues against this, in the podcast interview he explains why time isn’t tensed – and thus why Time Travel is a completely mistaken idea. This is fascinating, Mellor shows how any kind of ‘grandfather murder plot paradox’ is an impossibility because we are misapprehending the nature of time.
