We suggest that, far from establishing an inconsistency in the standard theory of the geometrical linear continuum, Zeno’s Paradox of Extension merely establishes an inconsistency between the
Mathematics, Models, and Zeno’s Paradoxes of Motion
A version of nonstandard analysis, Internal Set Theory, has been used to provide a resolution of Zeno’s paradoxes of motion. This resolution is inadequate because the application of Internal Set
Symmetric and asymmetric theories of time
There is a feeling of dissatisfaction with the traditional way of defining the A-theories of time. One reason is that these definitions rest on an ontological question—‘Do the future and the past

Presentism and the MicroStructure of Time
The standard account of the micro-structure of time is based on Cantor’s conception of continuity and thus views the time line as consisting of undenumerably many instants ordered by the B-theoretic
How (not) to judge a theory of causation
Philosophical theories of causation are commonly judged by their ability to correctly determine whether there is a causal relation present in intuitively clear example scenarios. If the theories
