The sea-fight tomorrow

Part of the Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy book series (SLAP, volume 57)


Chapter IX of Aristotle’s work, On Interpretation, is without doubt the philosophical text which has had the greatest impact on the debate about the relations between time, truth, and possibility. In this text we find the famous example of ‘the sea-fight tomorrow’; the discussion of this example certainly bears witness to the fact that Ancient philosophy was highly conscious of tense-logical problems (see [Gaskin 1995]).
