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.
When: Thu 1 Nov 2018 15:00 – 16:30 Eastern Australia Time - Sydney
