Traveling Through Time

During the recently completed spring term at Washington and Lee, Nathaniel Goldberg’s students in Philosophy 375 explored the philosophy of time travel: the philosophical possibility and implications.

Through the miracle of film, you can join their time-travel explorations. For their final project, the students created their own time-travel movies, and all four are available on Washington and Lee’s YouTube channel.

    Elizabeth Brassfield, Greg Bekiaris, Mike Drago, Max Hagler, and Joe Stockmeyer produced this movie about Fairchild van Waldenburg, a time-traveling student who has strong opinions about Mariah Carey movies.
  • Sherbe(r)t
    Danielle Maurer, Dewey Mixter, Jeni Pritchett, Alex Rosenfeld, and Ian Sturdy produced this movie about a Jeopardy! contestant, the name of a dessert and time travel.
  • The Power of Love
    Eric Gehman, Jamie Goodin, K. C. Jones,  Richard Knack, Paul Matteo, and Joe Stusek produced this still-action movie about W&L students traveling back in time to the Civil War to meet Robert E. Lee.
