This is a reminder for:
Title: Daniel Nolan (ANU)
It's a Kind of Magic: Lewis, Magic, and Uninstantiated Properties
David Lewis’s arguments against magical ersatzism are notoriously
puzzling. Untangling different strands in those arguments is useful for
bringing out what he thought was wrong with not just one style of theory
about possible worlds, but with much of the contemporary metaphysics of
abstract objects. After setting out what I take Lewis’s arguments to be
and how best to resist them, I consider the application of those arguments
to general theories of properties and relations. The constraints Lewis
motivates turn out to yield an argument for concretism about possible
individuals that is quite different from the better-known Lewisian
arguments for that position.
When: Wed 18 Sep 2013 15:30 – 17:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
Where: S401, Level 4, via Lobby B (or Southern Vestibule), Quadrangle
Building, University Place, The University of Sydney.
