Title: Maria Kon
The Duration of the Specious Present

What is the actual duration of the specious present?  To address the  
question, I survey definitions of 'specious present' that appear in recent  
philosophical literature on temporal experience.  After disentangling  
phenomenal duration(s) of the specious present from its actual duration, I  
show that the actual duration assumed in these definitions often relies on  
some notion of the actual present, i.e., the moment at which we have our  
specious experience.  This notion is either left vague--it doesn't have an  
explicit length--or corresponds to one of the following two general  
positions: those that claim that the actual temporal sequence of events  
just needs to be divisible into instantaneous instants, and those that  
claim that this present does have a particular length.  There are two  
lengths for the latter camp: instantaneous and non-instantaneous.  I focus  
on evaluating the options in the latter camp and argue in favour of the  
instantaneous one.
