(p.112) Chapter 5 The Arrow of Time
A Brief History of the Philosophy of Time

Adrian Bardon

Oxford University Press

If the dynamic theory of time is wrong, then the future isn’t coming, the present isn’t passing, and the past hasn’t passed. But then why does it seem that time has a direction—that there is a difference between earlier (backward in time) and later (forward in time)? Could the difference between earlier and later also be just a subjective matter?

Keywords:   direction of time, thermodynamic, entropy, causal, quantum entanglement, retrocausation
