About this Research Topic
This new theory of time is going to spark a fierce debate but one that the authors welcome. By inviting commentaries from members of the academic community who are thoroughly familiar with this debate because of their own personal contributions to the literature it should be possible to construct a special issue devoted to the criticism of the Dualistic Mind Theory. The topic itself has always generated much interest and a large readership. The introduction of this new theory, because it competes with other views of time, should generate even more excitement and an even bigger readership.
The commentators who would be contacted are experts in this field of the ‘flow of time’ and the ‘two times problem’ that has plagued physicists, philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists for years. We expect that this Article Collection will provide a platform for academics to discuss this theory and its implications, as well as the previous understanding of the topic and future directions.
