Thinking Aloud
Brent Slife Talks About Time
What if you could change your past?  Flout Father Time by going back to alter things so that they happened differently. Some philosophers believe there is no past, there is no future; there’s really only a now. But where’s the proof? We measure time as though it were tangible, and yet we cannot really isolate it as a basic element or event or phenomenon per se. The physical senses can infer that time exists, but not really approach the thing itself. On today’s Thinking Aloud, we’re talking to BYU philosopher and psychologist Brent Slife, who will help us explore some of Western civilization’s basic, but perhaps flawed, assumptions about time.—Original airdate: 12/28/2009
