  2. 2. Objects in Time : Studies of Persistence in B-time

    University dissertation from Department of Philosophy, Lund University

    Author : Tobias Hansson Wahlberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; B-time; three-dimensionalism.; stage theory; tenselessness; persistence; perdurance; mereology; four-dimensionalism; dispositions; endurance; B-theory of time; change; temporary intrinsics;

    Abstract : This thesis is about the conceptualization of persistence of physical, middle-sized objects within the theoretical framework of the revisionary ‘B-theory’ of time. According to the B-theory, time does not flow, but is an extended and inherently directed fourth dimension along which the history of the universe is ‘laid out’ once and for all. READ MORE

  3. 3. Elite sprinters, ice hockey players, orienteers and marathon runners isokinetic leg muscle performance in relation to muscle structure and training
