Chance and Temporal Asymmetry

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the debate over the metaphysics of the temporal arrow, and shows how evidence drawn from experience that seems to support a primitive, dynamic temporal direction could be undercut by evidence from cognitive science. These arguments suggest that the debate over the metaphysics of the temporal arrow should include more discussion about the way temporal experience is produced and interpreted.

Keywords:   temporal experience, arrow, time, phenomenology, Michotte, causal launching, entropy, reduction, Humean supervenience, primitivism
