Title: Tuomas Tahko
Tuomas E. Tahko (University of Helsinki): "Varieties of Fundamentality"

Metaphysical fundamentality can be defined in various ways. For instance,  
the fundamental may be conceived as ontologically independent, ungrounded,  
or as a complete minimal basis. Common at least to all the usual ways of  
understanding fundamentality is the idea of well-foundedness, the thought  
that the fundamental serves as the termination point for some dependence  
relation or other, often taken to be grounding. But well-foundedness itself  
can be understood in many different ways and the correct way to understand  
it may also depend on the relevant sense of fundamentality. In this paper,  
I will outline these different conceptions of fundamentality and compare  
some of their relative merits. A particular question of interest is whether  
some sense of fundamentality could be compatible with infinite chains of  
dependence. It turns out that there are at least a few different ways in  
which this is possible: infinite descent does not necessarily rule out  
metaphysical foundationalism.
