Philosophy of Time Travel

A session at Skeptics on the Fringe 2013

Sunday 18th August, 2013

7:50pm to 8:50pm (GMT)

Time travel has been a topic of serious scientific and philosophical discussion for decades. But how much sense can be made of time travel? Is time travel genuinely possible and, if so, what might its possibility reveal about time, our world, our selves and freedom? This talk aims to introduce the philosophy of time travel with only minimal technical detail and without mentioning ‘Dr. Who’ (too often).

Alasdair Richmond is a graduate of Aberdeen University and teaches philosophy at Edinburgh University. He works in philosophy of time and science and was a losing finalist in the 1976 John Menzies ‘Paint A Doctor Who Monster’ competition.
