Aristotle On Time: Chronos, Kinesis, and Aisthesis in PHYSICS IV

I seek support for the completion of a manuscript in which I develop a comprehensive interpretation of Aristotle's temporal theory. The project begins with some historical stage-setting in which ancient chronometers and Plato's TIMAEUS are discussed. The core of my interpretation is then presented and defended against objections raised by prominent scholars. Finally, I show how Aristotle's account of temporal passage is immune to devastating objections leveled by various twentieth-century philosophers.
