British philosophy is sometimes celebrated and sometimes satirized as sturdy common sense. It tends to be grounded in facts and logic, and prefers science to mysticism. James McTaggart supported his metaphysical idealism by advancing a famous argument against the existence of time. This terminology is so well-known in the philosophy of space and time that it is worth memorizing. The relations of the B-series are somehow between events and link them together, and each property of the A-series is within an individual event. The truth-maker principle insists that if a sentence is true of the world, then something in the world makes it true. McTaggart's argument here is deeper and more original, but also more involved. The properties P, N and F were meant to endow an event with a position in time, but now to avoid contradiction one must introduce a 'meta-time'.
