Temporal Reference Without the Concept of Time?
In this article I argue that whatever the preferred construal of time is, it is always further reducible to one that assumes tenseless reality. In particular, I argue for the superiority of an approach according to which the differences between the future, present and past are quantitative on the level of basic building blocks over a more intuitive view on which the differences are, as on the surface level, qualitative. I demonstrate that a qualitative construal is reducible to a quantitative one and that as such the latter fares better with the B-theoretic, tenseless outlook on reality.
