With a Response by John Earman Just when the hubbub over the infamous hole argument seemed to have died down, and you thought it was safe go back into the placid pool of classical GTR (away from the white-water rapids of quantum gravity), John Earman has conjured up yet another monster to trouble poor old Einstein. This time, a sprinkling of the magic powder of the constrained Hamiltonian formalism has been employed to resurrect the decomposing flesh of McTaggart, who intones that the GTR (yes… CONTINUE READING
