Review published in Seventeenth-Century News  [2015] Vol. 73, Nos. 3&4, pp. 131-35
“This is a book for philosophers who are not only interested in the
concept of time, but who seek new perspectives on this intriguing and
problematical philosophical concept as well as appreciate what René
Descartes and Thomas Hobbes have to say about it. Michael Edwards’
book is distinctive because it focuses attention on the numerous late
Aristotelian thinkers who assumed that the soul’s diverse functions
played an active role in the concept of time.”  READ MORE
