Abstract

This paper aims to update McTaggart's "contradiction" and to rethink the reality of time. According to McTaggart, every event has all of the incompatible A-characteristics. In other words, "past", "present", and "future" are both incompatible and compatible. This is McTaggart's "contradiction". I try to interpret this contradiction as follows: temporal becoming makes A-characteristics incompatible, while fixing them within description makes them compatible, and that temporal becoming and fixing them within description cannot help subsuming each other repeatedly. My interpretation suggests that this updated "contradiction" provides a proper reality of time (not unreality of time).
