The presentist's dilemma

Philosophical Studies 122 (3):213 - 225 (2005)
Abstract
This paper defends three theses: (i) that presentism is either trivial or untenable; (ii) that the debate between tensed and tenseless theories of time is not about the status of presentism; and (iii) that there is no temporal analogue of the modal thesis of actualism.
