In Defense of the Compossibility of Presentism and Time Travel
In this paper I defend the compossibility of presentism and time travel from two objections. One objection is that the presentist's model of time leaves nowhere
to travel to; the second objection attempts to equate presentist time travel with suicide. After targeting some misplaced scrutiny of the first objection, I show that presentists have the resources to account for the facts that make for time travel on the traditional Lewisian view. In light of this ability, I argue that both of the objections fail.
