This is a notification for:

Title: Ben Young
Title: Skeletons in the Presentist’s Cupboard.


When the presentist utters a proposition about some object that existed at  
a time but no longer exists now (presently) it is not clear what makes that  
proposition true. One solution offered by presentists is to posit presently  
existing surrogate entities that ‘stand in place’ for these merely past  
objects. But such entities have been accused of being dubious and pointing  
beyond. If such entities are accepted the question of what they ‘point  
beyond’ to must be answered. If they are rejected, the proper truthmakers  
must be identified. I argue that the most obvious candidate for the job is  
a logical consequence of the presentist’s position: merely past objects  
have an alternative mode of being.
