McTaggert says time includes an "irreducible" A series, of the past present and future flowing on like we're used to.
I think he says that the A series cannot exist so time isn't real.
McTaggart argued that there is in fact no such thing as time,
What philosophical evidence is there that this "A series" is real?
I ask because I maybe think that while I do seem to experience an A series, that I only really need commit to:
- now, and
- not now.
And I seem more inclined to accept that while something both is and isn't now, as per the style of McTaggert's argument against the A series, the terms are utterly primitive and unanalyzable and so this is no contradiction.
Does any philosophical text take this approach in an interesting way?
