Time Biases. A Theory of Rational Planning and Personal Persistence.
Oxford University Press, 2022. 208p. Paperback. In her exceptional new book . . . Meghan Sullivan aims to demonstrate that temporal bias is irrational and that we instead should be temporally neutral. . . . The best books in philosophy focus on a new (or underexplored) problems and make significant headway in solving those problems. Sullivan's Time Biases does exactly that. Her arguments are original, insightful, and usually compelling. Her understanding of the issues are so deep, and her writing so clear, that the careful reader can't help but gain a significant understanding of the relevant philosophical terrain. This book is an invaluable contribution to the literature on time biases, which will hopefully grow in the future, thanks in part to this groundbreaking work.
