A Letter from Jason Seiler:
Metaphysics Class Links

Jason was at that time enrolled in a course in the Metaphysics of Time Travel, and provided links to the professor's site.  Jason's page has since been removed from the college server (we can only assume he has graduated), but the professor still offers useful papers and links.

From:  "J. Seiler"

Hello.  Thank you for your prompt reply to my questions/ponderings.  If you would like a link to the paper I mentioned, it is as follows:  http://coyote.ycp.edu/~jseiler/metaphysics.htm My Prof also happens to be making a link to this page, as it was one of the ones he enjoyed most of the class.  Our entire class has had many and varied reactions to your musings on the nature of time and determinism.  I'm sure you've read Lewis and James and their views and opinions.  If you link to my Prof.'s page, he should have a link to a couple of other papers from the class.  Oh, and if you have not yet read "All You Zombies," by Robert Heinlein, it is a MUST!

Thanks

Jason--

Again, thank you for your comments on my temporal anomalies web site.

Discovering that my writings have become part of an undergraduate course in metaphysics has me a bit embarrassed; I hope I can continue to provide material worthy of such examination.  I'm also quite curious as to the opinions of the others in the class (especially the professor); you might mention to them that I'd be interested in their thoughts, and might even add their letters to the discussion (said on the risk that I may be overwhelmed with high-caliber questions from this).

I'll also keep an eye open for your recommended reading, although it's been a while since I've had time to get through the books I've wanted to read.

Thanks again.
