BAKER, Lynne Rudder. Reply to Oaklander. Manuscrito [online]. 2017, vol.40, n.1, pp.67-73. ISSN 2317-630X.

In September, 2016, I replied to an earlier draft of Oaklander’s Critique of my view of time for Manuscrito. Now he has published an extremely complex 50-page expanded version. There is no way that a reply in a journal could cover all the topics Oaklander discusses. So, I will stick mainly to my own view to which Oaklander was responding.

My reply is in two parts. In the first, directed at Oaklander’s earlier draft, I say what I want to do in philosophy in general, and in the philosophy of time in particular. In the second part, I mention some places where he (apparently) misunderstands my view.

Keywords : The Metaphysics of Everyday Life; A- and B-theories of time; Nathan Oaklander; Transiency.
