At first sight, it seems natural to combine some sort of powers ontology with a dynamical view of time, since the dynamic character of powers appears to account for the progression of time. Accordingly, it has been argued that a powers ontology, which is supposed to be inherently dynamic and productive, is incompatible with eternalism, which does not allow for any sort of real productivity. After having reviewed these arguments, I will argue that the powers view is not only incompatible with eternalism but also with the moving spotlight view and growing block theory. I will go on to argue that the specific notion of activity that the powers ontology provides is not straightforwardly compatible with presentism either.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Backmann, Marius</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2018-05-11T07:11:18Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Backmann, Marius</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>No time for powers</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2018-05-11T07:11:18Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2019-11-26</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
