John Ellis McTaggart
The Unreality of Time
Mind: A Quarterly Review of Psychology and Philosophy 17 (1908): 456-473
I have learned about the McTaggart's A- and B-series from John Yates.
Now I have found the original paper by McTaggart in Internet:
In the paper, the author proves that time is unreal. He first introduces
the A-series that contain past, present, and future and then shows that
this idea is self-contradictory.
I should say that the paper is popular nowadays as well, Google Scholar
shows about 700 citations.
The paper is relatively short (about 8500 words) and it is nice. I like it.
