Time Biases Book


sullivan_visuals_gold_Page_2Time Biases: A Theory of Rational Planning and Personal Persistence.  Summer 2018 with Oxford University Press.  You can order it here.

The book considers philosophical arguments (both historical and contemporary) over how temporal considerations should affect how you plan and what you (now) hope for in your life.  It develops a theory that I call temporal neutrality. The project builds in equal parts on my work on the metaphysics of time and the nature of rationality.  Here is a draft of the Introduction and Table of Contents. Matt Teichman at UChicago taped an episode of Elucidations about the project.

And here is a short video Notre Dame made about time biases, way back when I was starting the project!
