Abstract

This article is a response to Clifford Williams's claim that the debate between A- and B theories of time is misconceived because these theories do not differ. I provide some missing support for Williams's claim that the B-theory includes transition, by arguing that representative B-theoretic explanations for why we experience time as passing (even though it does not) are inherently unstable. I then argue that, contra Williams, it does not follow that there is nothing at stake in the A- versus B debate.
