The Aristotelian Society presents:
Professor Thomas Sattig (Tübingen) – The Flow of Time in Experience
Thomas Sattig is Professor of Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Tübingen. He completed his D.Phil. at Oxford University, where he was also a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and a Junior Research Fellow. Subsequently, he held positions as Assistant Professor at Tulane University and at Washington University in St. Louis. Sattig works primarily in metaphysics. He focuses on issues concerning material objects, persons, time, modality, mereology, and indeterminacy, often following metaphysics to regions where it meets philosophy of language and philosophy of mind. His publications include the monographs The Language and Reality of Time (OUP, 2006) and The Double Lives of Objects: An Essay in the Metaphysics of the Ordinary World (OUP, 2015). He currently works on the nature and our experience of the flow of time.
