Dean Zimmerman focuses on the debate between a serious-tenser B-theorist and an eternalist A-theorist concerning truth and truth-conditions in tensed propositions. According to Zimmerman, the only way for the A-theorist to distinguish herself from the B-theorist is to argue for the non-relative (temporary monadic) truth of tensed propositions making special assumptions about the doctrine of temporal parts. I claim instead that the A-theorist can argue for the non-relative truth of tensed propositions adopting tensed truth-conditions incompatible with the B-theorist’s hypotheses.

Abstract

Dean Zimmerman focuses on the debate between a serious-tenser B-theorist and an eternalist A-theorist concerning truth and truth-conditions in tensed propositions. According to Zimmerman, the only way for the A-theorist to distinguish herself from the B-theorist is to argue for the non-relative (temporary monadic) truth of tensed propositions making special assumptions about the doctrine of temporal parts. I claim instead that the A-theorist can argue for the non-relative truth of tensed propositions adopting tensed truth-conditions incompatible with the B-theorist’s hypotheses.
