Can we describe possible circumstances in which we would have most reason to believe that time is two-dimensional?
Ratio 17 (1):68–83 (2004)
I argue that no one has yet successfully managed to describe possible circumstances in which it would be correct to say that we have most reason to believe that time is two-dimensional. I also argue--using a similar strategy--that Shoemaker's famous case for time without change does not describe possible circumstances in which it would be correct to say that we have most reason to believe that there is time without change.
