This essay says something about nearly every aspect of Aristotle’s discussion of time. The most difficult question of interpretation is what Aristotle might have meant by describing time as ‘a number’. The main question of evaluation is whether there really is any connection between time and motion. Both of these issues and many minor issues are addressed.
