article description
In his Time's Arrow and Archimedes' Point, Huw Price criticizes the arguments of some contemporary cosmologists about the cosmological origin of the arrow of time, who supposedly fail to adopt an atemporal viewpoint. In this article we analyze Price's criticisms to Hawking's "no boundary" condition, by arguing that his conclusions rest on certain assumptions questionable from a scientific viewpoint. This task opens the way to a global and non-entropic approach to the arrow of time, which allows for a new dialogue with Price's proposal.
