dc.description.abstractI reconstruct from Rietdijk and Putnam's well-known papers an argument against the applicability of the concept of becoming in Special Relativity, which I think is unaffected by some of the objections found in the literature. I then consider a line of thought found in the discussion of the possible conventionality of simultaneity in Special Relativity, beginning with Reichenbach, and apply it to the debate over becoming. We see that it immediately renders Rietdijk and Putnam's argument unsound. I end by comparing my approach to others found in the literature, primarily Stein's.
