In philosophy, a thick concept (sometimes: thick normative concept, or thick evaluative concept) is a kind of concept that both has a significant degree of descriptive content and is evaluatively loaded... Thick concepts thus seem to occupy a 'middle position' between (thin) descriptive concepts and (thin) evaluative concepts.
I know there are lots of different ways to think about time: e.g. McTaggert's A B and C series. I assume time has many other theories about it.
Has any philosopher or philosophy tried to make time thin? Detached the descriptive aspect of "times" from their normative component?
So e.g. using McTaggert's A series: an A property cannot tell us anything about value.
I would imagine the conventional pre philosophical idea of time is that timing can have a normative component (my wedding is in just three days, that's such a good thing): so if time is in this sense "thin" it would have some currency.
I personally have a number of reasons to wonder if time is thin, too various to explain here: the modern lyric; an interest in mythological characters who represent time; in the meaning of my own death; in boredom and flux; etc..
