About the Author

Robin Le Poidevin was a Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews (1988-9) and Lecturer in Philosophy at Oriel College, Oxford (1987). He lives in Farnhill, West Yorkshire. Andrew MacBeath lives in Dunblane, Perthshire.


`Since the 1960's, the Oxford Readings in Philosophy have provided an essential service to all teachers of the subjects. ... in a colourful and attractive new format, but the essential aim of the series remains unchanged: to introduce students, as gently as is realistically possible, to the best work in a given area. ...the volume on time is very wide ranging.' Cogito: Winter 1993 `The anthology on Time by R. Le Poivedin and Murray MacBeath will be an important member of the excellent series Oxford Readings in Philosophy.' J.J.C. Smart, Centre for Information Science Research `This is a useful book for me to commend to graduates working on Metaphysics generally, or on the relations of God to Time. It collects together relevant papers in a cheap and accessible form, in a way that no other collection known to me does.' Professor R.G. Swinburne, University of Oxford `Now the definitive collection.' E.J. Lowe, Durham University `I had already recommended this book (along with Sosa's Oxford Readings book on Causation) as the set text for a course on Causation and Time. I think its a good volume, well priced for students.' Dr Stephen Makin, Sheffield University `Outstanding new anthology ... this book - while "introductory" in its potential role as a prelude to more directed studies in time - includes papers that will be inaccessible to many undergraduates ... invaluable for a graduate seminar on time ... Le Poidevin and MacBeath have crafted an important compilation of recent works useful for professionals and for advanced students in the metaphysics of time. As the newest volume in the Oxford Readings in Philosophy, this book makes an outstanding addition to an already distinguished series.' Teaching Philosophy
