Opening Remarks to a Work in Progress on Subject of Time

In the “modern” age, people seem to be saying a lot of things about time, and for the most part these are scientists who come across rather eristically and dogmatically. Although the assertions made today about time may very well be necessary for modern physics to work, it would seem prudent for the philosopher to ask whether or not these contemporary concepts of time cover up the very thing in question. Like Aristotle in the Physics, we must begin anew in trying to give an account of what time is before we begin putting the concept to work. And if, in asking ourselves what time is, modern physics falls apart like a house of cards, I think that the demise of modern physics would call for a glass of champagne- and I do live in hope of drinking such a toast.
