`Since the 1960's, the Oxford Readings in Philosophy have provided an essential service to all teachers of the subject. ... in a colourful and attractive new format, but the essential aim of the series remains unchanged: to introduce students, as gently as is realistically possible, to the best work in a given area. ... the volume on time is very wide ranging
Cogito :Winter 1993

`Excellent selection from the literature'
W.H. Newton-Smith, Balliol College, University of Oxford

`First-rate anthology'
Mr R.B. Taylor, University of Kent

`Very useful collection of papers.'
Dr E.J. Lowe, Durham University

`An excellent collection containing classic papers on causation.'
Dr C. Macdonald, University of Manchester

'This anthology will be quite valuable to professional philosophers, graduate students and advanced undergraduates. It could easily be used as a source of material for a seminar on causation. The book contains an extensive bibliography and this alone makes it a valuable resource to anyone doing research in this or a related field.'
Fred Foulks, University of British Columbia, Canadian Philosophical Reviews, Vol. XIV, No. 1, Feb 1994
