Dr Baron's present research focuses on the connection between key topics in the philosophy of mathematics concerning mathematical ontology, and topics in the philosophy of time concerning temporal ontology.
A central focus of this research is the role of truthmaking and non-causal explanation in arguments both for and against particular ontological views.
Dr Baron is currently investigating the role of non-causal explanation in the indispensability argument for the existence of mathematical objects, as well as timelessness in theories of quantum gravity and timelessness in metaphysics more generally.
Black holes form natural time machines that allow travel to both the past and the future. But don't expect to be visiting dinosaurs any time soon.

According Einstein's Theory of Relativity, the speed of light operates as a universal speed limit on anything with mass.
Does time exist? Developments in physics suggest the non-existence of time is an open possibility, and one that we should take seriously.
