About the book
The question of time is a question of time. How
long will it take for the question concerning time to become the question of our time? That
neither you nor I know. Today the question is still being evaded, as if it had been settled for all time already by
Aristotle. Modern science, even today's most advanced quantum physics, despite eschewing Aristotle
as superseded, nevertheless remains true to his conception of linear, numeric time. It doesn't want to
touch the question for fear of losing control over time as a mathematizable physical variable. But is time
physical? The guiding thesis of the present collection of essays is that it is not, but neither is it a formal
construct inside subjective consciousness. Therein lies the subversive adventurousness of the study,
which is the philosophical companion to The Land of Matta (2015).
Eldred trained as a mathematician at Sydney University, then gaining
a doctorate in philosophy, where he has numerous publications in several
languages in the areas of phenomenology and socio-political philosophy.
