PHIL2109 Contemporary Metaphysics
Assessment Task 3
Argue against the idea that time is directed.
(Here are some things you might try: (a) consider various reasons for thinking that time is directed and argue against those reasons; (b) suggest a way of thinking about things in which time is not directed; (c) argue directly that time is not directed.)
(You will probably need to start by clarifying what the idea is.)

Mark. I'll give you a mark out of 20.
