    Where, When, and Why Is Zeno’s Arrow Unmoved? – A Note on the Zenonian Challenge in Aristotle’s Physics, Book VI.Gottfried Heinemann - 2024 - History of Philosophy & Logical Analysis 26 (2):207-231.
    Zeno’s arrow does not move “in the now” (Phys. VI 8, 239b2) or, equivalently, “in the place it is” (DK 29 B 4). Zeno concludes from this that the arrow does not move at all. In Aristotle (ibid. 9, 239b5–9, 31–33), Zeno’s argument takes the form of an invalid inference from instants to periods of time. Insofar as it fails to bring out an inconsistency in Aristotle’s account of motion, the paradox is thus eliminated. That instantaneous motion is a contradiction (...)

    Aristotle on Continuity: Continuous Connection in Phys. V 3, and the Mathematical Account of Motion and Time in Phys. VI.Gottfried Heinemann - 2023 - Aristotelica 4 (4):5-34.
    Wholes have parts, and wholes are prior to parts according to Aristotle. Aristotle’s accounts of continuity, in _Phys_. V 3 (plus sections in Metaph. Δ 6 and Ι 1) on the one hand and in _Phys_. VI on the other, are specified in terms of ways in which wholes are related to parts. The synthesis account in Phys. V 3 etc. applies primarily to bodies (in, e.g., anatomy). It indicates a variety of ways in which parts of a body are (...)

    Praesens de futuris: Whitehead on How to Be Going to Move Forward into the Future.Gottfried Heinemann - 2019 - Axiomathes 29 (1):17-32.
    Whitehead’s metaphysics involves an event ontology. Fundamental—that is, in Whitehead’s language: “actual”—entities are events, described as acts of experience. It also involves presentism since past events have perished and future events do not yet exist according to Whitehead. Hence the question alluded to in the title of the present paper: “How are you going to move forward into the future?… If you conceive it under the guise of a temporal transition into the non-existent, you can’t get going.” I will argue (...)
