Time travel: Processes and Paradoxes

UW Philosophers at Work

Event Details

Thursday, November 8, 2018
5:30 p.m.
Time travel is an exciting topic. It is explored not only in countless works of fiction, but also in
extensive scientific and philosophical literatures. But different people imagine time travel differently, and
the first main task of this talk is to sort out the numerous time travel processes that have been proposed.
The second main task is to investigate the bewildering array of time travel paradoxes. Do the paradoxes
show time travel to be impossible?
Free and open to the public
