Chapter Summary

Authentic Eleaticism demands a temporally dynamic account of real existence, or else concludes that time is unreal. It demands that one not try to skirt the issue by excising temporality from time. The author have attempted to articulate the experiential encounters with dynamic existents or phenomena as involving a sense of their ongoing newness, continuous anew-ness, uninterrupted ever-newness, incessant renewd-ness, or some such. Regarding time, they use various metaphors and images to convey this sense. One likens time to a river: Time flows. It also flows past us, or else bears us along with it. Or, time passes, and it passes-by and -for us. It marches on, too. Sometimes, like Zeno's (apparent) arrow, time even flies. This chapter discusses four possible aspects of temporality which seem especially pertinent to explicating its dynamicism.
