On Absolute Becoming and the Myth of Passage

In Craig Callender (ed.), Time, Reality & Experience. pp. 153- (2002)
Abstract
I propose that the passage of time is the successive occurrence of sets of simultaneous events (assuming classical or Newtonian spacetime structure as background). This conception of passage, I claim, is lean enough to survive the criticisms of passage-deniers while robust enough to satisfy the needs of passage-affirmers. I undertake to describe and defend this minimal notion of passage.
