Other Times - Abstract

Kant claimed that space and time are essentially unitary. At least since Quinton's 1962 paper, `Spaces and Times', most writers have accepted that Kant was wrong about space - that we can in fact conceive of two or more spatially isolated spatial regions. With regard to time, however, most of those writers have accepted Quinton's conclusion that Kant's claim must be allowed to stand - that we cannot conceive of temporally isolated temporal regions. I offer a counter-example to this conclusion, along the lines of Quinton's dual-existence example, and I defend it against a number of possible objections.
