Philosophy of Time: A view from the Past

17-18 May 2018

 

Sala Crociera Alta di Giurisprudenza, Via Festa del Perdono 7, Università degli Studi di Milano

Philosophy of time is a particularly lively area of contemporary philosophy with a great deal of interdisciplinary interaction. Several aspects and issues connected to this topic and the related theories have been systematically explored and intensely debated, in a considerable and still increasing amount of literature. Many of these issues and problems have emerged in the course of history, though often in contexts that were very different from the ones in which we find them today. Although general historical overviews can be found in many contemporary overviews of philosophy of time, the relevance of historical considerations for many contemporary debates has been often overlooked. The authors and philosophical movements on which the invited speaker will focus range from antiquity to the beginning of twentieth century, where the framework and agenda of contemporary philosophy of time started to be worked out.
