Samuele Iaquinto (Milano Univ.)

Description

The aim of this talk is to offer a critical overview of the current philosophical debate in the
philosophy of the future, stressing the close connections between physics and metaphysics. I will
discuss linear and branching-time models, underlining their relations with the debate on tense
realism, that is, the debate about whether the flow of time is a genuine feature of reality.
