Summary "This considered and wide-ranging study offers a contractive analysis of phenomenologies of time from the perspective of the problematics of the visibility of time. Is time perceptible only through the veil of the change of events? Or is there a naked presence of 'time itself'? Or has time always effaced itself?" "McLure's new work also stages confrontations between phenomenology of time and analytical philosophy of time. In doing so he explores from fresh perspectives such ancient issues such as whether time passes, whether experimental time is 'real time', whether the very concept of time is self-contradictory, or subjective." "The Philosophy of Time: Time before Times is essential reading for students and teachers of philosophy worldwide."--BOOK JACKET
