Wilson’s account of ‘substance-language’ where, in our everyday speech, we talk about events as they go on and change. In opposition, Prior highlights that mathematical logicians (such as Quine) wrongly promote ‘space-time’ language, where words that we use to describe individuals existing through time are replaced with words describing ‘word-lines’ or ‘life-histories’ of events....   [tags: language, tenses, events]
