Perspectives on the Philosophy of Time

Thursday 8 December 2022

What is time? Is it dynamic, and if so, what does that mean? And how does our own position within time influence our ability to philosophically reflect on it? The workshop Perspectives on the Philosophy of Time, held at Leiden University on December 8th, brings together six scholars from both analytic and continental philosophy who will discuss the nature of time and the ways that philosophy can approach this perennially perplexing topic.


The workshop can be attended free of charge, but please register at least 48 hours in advance by sending an email to one of the organisers,
