The time-gap argument

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 47 (3):263-272 (1969)
Abstract
I argue that the time-gap argument poses no objection to Direct Realism. In the case of exploded stars many light years from us, what we see is no longer the star, but its light. I argue that in all cases of seeing we see light, but only when physical objects exist at the time of our seeing do we see them.
