Title: Sam Baron
What’s So Spatial About Time Anyway?

Skow ([2007]), and much more recently Callender ([2017]), argue that time  
can be distinguished
from space due to the special role it plays in our laws of nature: our laws  
the behaviour of physical systems across time, but not across space. In  
this work we assess
the claim that the laws of nature might provide the basis for  
distinguishing time from space.
We find that there is an obvious reason to be sceptical of the argument  
Skow submits for
distinguishing time from space: Skow fails to pay sufficient attention to  
the relationship
between the dynamical laws and the antecedent conditions required to  
establish a complete
solution from the laws. Callender’s more sophisticated arguments in favour  
of distinguishing
time from space by virtue of the laws of nature presents a much stronger  
basis to draw
the distinction. By developing a radical reading of Callender’s view we  
propose a novel
approach to differentiating time and space that we call temporal  
perspectivalism. This is
the view according to which the difference between time and space is a  
function of the
agentive perspective.
