    Abstract

    Resumo: Neste artigo, analisamos algumas das versões mais recentes da objecção à existência de um fluxo do tempo baseadas na pergunta: “Com que velocidade flui o tempo?”. Mostramos que as respostas dadas para resolver este problema são implausíveis, pelo que propomos uma solução assente numa nova concepção de fluxo temporal. A teoria metafísica proposta desenvolve radicalmente as ideias de Broad e Prior, invalidando as objecções provenientes não só da questão sobre a taxa do fluir do tempo, como das respostas de tipo “segundo a segundo”.


    Palavras-chave: existência dinâmica, fluxo do tempo, presentismo, velocidade de passagem do tempo 

    Abstract: This paper analyzes some recent versions of the objection to the existence of the flow of time based on the question: “How fast does time flow?”. We show that the replies given to the problem are implausible and instead we propose a solution for the issue in the form of a conception of the flow of time which can avoid such difficulties. The proposed metaphysical theory develops the ideas of Broad and Prior in a radical way and invalidates the objection resulting from the question about the rate of passage and answers “second per second”.


    Keywords: flow of time; rate of time’s passage; presentism; dynamic existence
