Issue: Issue 06 • Author/s: Brian Garrett
Topics: History of Analytic Philosophy, Theoretical philosophy
Michael Dummett’s paper “A Defence of McTaggart’s Proof of the Unreality of Time” put forward an ingenious interpretation of McTaggart’s famous proof. My aim in this discussion is not to assess the cogency of McTaggart’s reasoning, but to criticise Dummett’s interpretation of McTaggart.
