Time offers a comprehensive history of the philosophy of time in western philosophy from the Greeks through to the twentieth century.
In the first half of the book, Philip Turetzky explores theories in ancient and modern philosophy chronologically: from Aristotle to Nietzsche. In the latter half, Turetzky describes the philosophy of time in three twentieth-century philosophical traditions:
* analytic philosophy including philosophers such as McTaggart and Mellor
* phenomenology Husserl and Heidegger
* a distaff tradition which Turetzky identifies as including Bergson and Deleuze.
