[Review of Four-Dimensionalism: An Ontology of Persistence and Time, by Tider]

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Introduction: How do the familiar concrete objects of common-sense persist through time? The four- dimensionalist argues that they perdure, i.e., they persist through time by having temporal parts at each of the times at which they exist. The three-dimensionalist, on the other hand, holds that ordinary concrete objects endure; they lack an additional temporal dimension and persist, instead, by being (as they say) ‘wholly present’ at each of the times at which they exist.
