Abstract

philosophical jargon are called Tenses". To claim that Tenses are real is to claim that they are satisfied, i.e. that something in fact possesses them. The debate between realists and antirealists concerning Tense has so far been conducted in ontological terms. Realists about Tense (so-called A-theorists)claim that things really do have Tenses, antirealists (Btheorists) deny this. Most of them claim that Tenses can be reduced to tenseless properties. This book criticises the current debate between A-theorists like Quentin Smith and B-theorists like D. H. Mellor on methodological grounds. It suggests an alternative strategy for how the debate might proceed, where insights from other kinds of realism-debates are made useful for the debate about Tense. This book makes the original attempt to apply two general frameworks for realism-debates, developed by Michael Dummett and Crispin Wright, to the debate about Tense. Here the focus lies on the correct interpretation of the truth-predicate for statements of the disputed kind. The aim of this publication is to show that the debate about the reality of Tense should be reinterpreted as a debate about the truth and semantics of statements which ascribe Tenses."

Abstract

In the work presented here, (...) the real weight, the frequency of use of the temporal functions, which are inseparable from the temporal functions, are the center of interest in certain environments. In the core parts of the work on journalistic, everyday language and dramatic, narrative, administrative and scientific types of text essential questions for the representation of the aspect-tense functions are answered. New problems, which arise only from the question and have not been addressed in the literature, will be followed, especially the expectability of certain forms and functions in the course of the text.
