Metaphysics: Classic and Contemporary Readings, 2nd edition. Belmont, CA: Thomson-Wadsworth. An anthology that keys on problems of time and the challenges that evolving science pose for philosophy and the common (or “manifest”) image of reality. Contains the work of several authors mentioned here. Kant, I. (1965). Critique of Pure Reason. K. Smith. New York: St. Martins. , and Schofield, M. (1983). The Presocratic Philosophers, 2nd edition. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. A standard source of pre-Socratic material and issues.

For more on sources, translations, and controversies see Kirk, Raven, and Schofield (hereafter “KRS”), and McKirahan (1994). 2 Forget, for now, about the issue whether the future is “determined” – that is, happens in accordance with 1–1 causal laws.
