Time and Determinism

A footnote from the physics textbook Motion Mountain by Christoph Schiller:

This is very strong type of determinism will be very much challenged in the last part of this text, in which it will be shown that time is not a fundamental concept, and therefore that the debate around determinism loses most of its interest.

Time not a fundamental concept?  I think someone should tell the philosophers.
