|Time: A. Time is a dimension in which events are arranged. At first, no direction (before / after) is defined with this. A time direction can be obtained in the context of the Second Principle of Thermodynamics. However, a global framework must be assumed, within which there is an increase of entropy. The assumption of increasing entropy does not apply to the comparison of local events. B. In the case of the subjective time, the question of direction is less problematic. The perceived time direction is expressed by the learned use of the terms "before" and "after". See also time arrow, time travel, time reversal, symmetry, duration, space time, relativity theory, four-dimensionalism, world lines._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Time/Dummett: asymmetry only by intention - we can not retroactively ascribe intentions - if only there were plants in a world, time reversal would be no problem - the apple jumps back to the tree - Problem: we can not explain why at the time.

((s)/Dummett: reverse causality in a reverse flow were initially no problem, but can not explain origins - it makes everything look like random.) -
Ancient Greeks/Dummett: believed that different causal laws apply to the firmament.
Possible worlds/Dummett: this belief could have turned out to be true._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
