Time Travel: The grandfather paradox and abilities

SECOND YEAR PHILOSOPHY PHD STUDENT LIV explores the grandfather paradox in this Panpsycast podcast episode

The grandfather paradox is a paradox in time travel which asks: can time travellers change the past?

The name comes from a common description where we go back in time and kill our own grandfather before the conception of our mother or father. Many people say no, it is logically impossible.
