• Borges’s Two Refutations of Time

      Van Cleve, James; Brown University (2001-01-01)
      Jorge Luis Borges offers two proofs of the unreality of time. One of these is based on the idealism of Berkeley. The other is based on Leibniz’s principle of the identity of indiscernibles. Though the logic of both arguments is valid, neither of them is fully compelling in its premises.
