  2. Time.Bradley Dowden - 2001 - Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    Time Time is what clocks measure.

  5. Truth.Bradley Dowden - 2004 - Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    Philosophers are interested in a constellation of issues involving the concept of truth. A preliminary issue, although somewhat subsidiary, is to decide what sorts of things can be true. Is truth a property of sentences (which are linguistic entities in some language or other), or is truth a property of propositions (nonlinguistic, abstract and timeless entities)? The principal issue is: What is truth? It is the problem of being clear about what you are saying when you say some claim or (...)

    Time.Bradley Dowden - 2020 - Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    Time Time is what a clock is used to measure. Information about time tells the durations of events, and when they occur, and which events happen before which others. So, time plays a very significant role in the universe’s organization. Nevertheless, despite 2,500 years of investigation into the nature of time, there are many unresolved … Continue reading Time →.

  14. Infinite.Bradley Dowden - 2013 - Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    The Infinite Working with the infinite is tricky business. Zeno’s paradoxes first alerted philosophers to this in 450 B.C.E. when he argued that a fast runner such as Achilles has an infinite number of places to reach during the pursuit of a slower runner. Since then, there has been a struggle to understand how to […].
