Two paradigms of temporal logic

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


Since Antiquity two images of time have been discussed: the flow of the river and the line made up of stationary points. The tension between the two pictures of time, the dynamic and the static view, has for instance been expressed by the Aristotelian idea of time as the number of motion with respect to earlier and later — an idea, which comprises both pictures. On the one hand time is linked to motion, i.e. changes in the world, and on the other hand time can be conceived as a stationary order of events represented by numbers.
