Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Timelessness: sentences such as "The door is open" are not unambiguously endowed with a truth value (true / false) as long as more precise provisions are missing. By setting the time and place, such a sentence is made timeless. A corresponding timeless sentence is therefore true at this time and at all later times when the door was open at this time. See also truth values, interpretation.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.

Proposition/Timeless/Prior/Lewis: E.g. Prior: next week after the test, I'll go home and say, "Thank God that it's over," but I will not say "Thank God, Wednesday 11:45 is over". - not everything we say can be expressed by a timeless copula and date. - Solution/Lewis: periods of me as a subject of desire, not the whole person.
