167Truth and Paradox: Solving the RiddlesOxford University Press. 2004.In this ingenious and powerfully argued book Tim Maudlin sets out a novel account of logic and semantics which allows him to deal with certain notorious paradoxes which have bedevilled philosophical theories of truth. All philosophers interested in logic and language will find this a stimulating read.

What’s the deal with the really, really, weirdacting stuff that everything is made of? Can we ever take in our everyday world the same way again if we fully understand the nature of the quantum world? With Jeffrey Bub , Tim Maudlin , and Drew Arrowood

135TimeTravel and TopologyPSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1990. 1990.This paper demonstrates that John Wheeler and Richard Feynman's strategy for avoiding causal paradoxes threatened by backward causation and timetravel can be defeated by designing selfinteracting mechanisms with a nonsimple topological structure. Timetravel therefore requires constraints on the allowable data on spacelike hypersurfaces. The nature and significance of these constraints is discussed.

524Buckets of water and waves of space: Why spacetime is probably a substancePhilosophy of Science 60 (2): 183203. 1993.This paper sketches a taxonomy of forms of substantivalism and relationism concerning space and time, and of the traditional arguments for these positions. Several natural sorts of relationism are able to account for Newton's bucket experiment. Conversely, appropriately constructed substantivalism can survive Leibniz's critique, a fact which has been obscured by the conflation of two of Leibniz's arguments. The form of relationism appropriate to the Special Theory of Relativity is also able to e…Read more

82New Foundations for Physical Geometry: The Theory of Linear StructuresOxford University Press. 2014.Tim Maudlin sets out a completely new method for describing the geometrical structure of spaces, and thus a better mathematical tool for describing and understanding spacetime. He presents a historical review of the development of geometry and topology, and then his original Theory of Linear Structures

383Three measurement problemsTopoi 14 (1): 715. 1995.The aim of this essay is to distinguish and analyze several difficulties confronting attempts to reconcile the fundamental quantum mechanical dynamics with Born''s rule. It is shown that many of the proposed accounts of measurement fail at least one of the problems. In particular, only collapse theories and hidden variables theories have a chance of succeeding, and, of the latter, the modal interpretations fail. Any real solution demands new physics.

18Truth and ParadoxPhilosophy and Phenomenological Research 73 (3): 705712. 2006.Consider the sentence 'This sentence is not true'. It seems that the sentence can be neither true nor not true, on pain of contradiction. Certain notorious paradoxes like this have bedevilled philosophical theories of truth. Tim Maudlin presents an original account of logic and semantics which deals with these paradoxes, and allows him to set out a new theory of truthvalues and the norms governing claims about truth. All philosophers interested in logic and language will find Truth and Paradox …Read more

101Philosophy of Physics: Space and TimePrinceton University Press. 2012.This concise book introduces nonphysicists to the core philosophical issues surrounding the nature and structure of space and time, and is also an ideal resource for physicists interested in the conceptual foundations of spacetime theory. Tim Maudlin's broad historical overview examines Aristotelian and Newtonian accounts of space and time, and traces how Galileo's conceptions of relativity and spacetime led to Einstein's special and general theories of relativity. Maudlin explains special rel…Read more

754Time, topology and physical geometryAristotelian Society Supplementary Volume 84 (1): 6378. 2010.The standard mathematical account of the submetrical geometry of a space employs topology, whose foundational concept is the open set. This proves to be an unhappy choice for discrete spaces, and offers no insight into the physical origin of geometrical structure. I outline an alternative, the Theory of Linear Structures, whose foundational concept is the line. Application to Relativistic spacetime reveals that the whole geometry of spacetime derives from temporal structure. In this sense, in…Read more

167The Essence of SpaceTimePSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1988. 1988.I argue that Norton & Earman's hole argument, despite its historical association with General Relativity, turns upon very general features of any linguistic system that can represent substances by names. After exploring various means by which mathematical objects can be interpreted as representing physical possibilities, I suggest that a form of essentialism can solve the hole dilemma without abandoning either determinism or substantivalism. Finally, I identify the basic tenets of such an essent…Read more

330Why Bohm's theory solves the measurement problemPhilosophy of Science 62 (3): 479483. 1995.Abraham Stone recently has published an argument purporting to show that David Bohm's interpretation of quantum mechanics fails to solve the measurement problem. Stone's analysis is not correct, as he has failed to take account of the conditions under which the theorems he cites are proven. An explicit presentation of a Bohmian measurement illustrates the flaw in his reasoning
