What is time? Is it dynamic, and if so, what does that mean? And how does our own position within time influence our ability to philosophically reflect on it? The workshop Perspectives on the Philosophy of Time, held at Leiden University on December 8th, brings together six scholars who will discuss the nature of time and the ways that philosophy can approach this perennially perplexing topic.
