Time travel has been a topic of serious scientific and philosophical discussion for decades. But how much sense can be made of time travel? Is time travel genuinely possible and, if so, what might its possibility reveal about time, our world, our selves and freedom? This talk aims to introduce the philosophy of time travel with only minimal technical detail and without mentioning ‘Dr. Who’ (too often).
