Dear Colleague,

ALL PERVADING TRANSCENDENT GOD: Omnipresence, Mereology, & Simplicity

Speaker: Aaron Cotnoir<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/ZM8wCyojxQT75jQ3EUZ7jAd?domain=st-andrews.ac.uk> (University of St Andrews, UK)

Chair: Daniel Molto<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/EMO2CzvkyVCGoPyzviXSbwi?domain=profiles.sussex.ac.uk> (University of Sussex, UK)

Abstract: Mereological Harmony principles necessitate that any entity occupying a complex location must have parts located there. These principles can conflict with an omnipresent simple God. This paper lists potential sources of conflict, showing how most occupation-based accounts of omnipresence must reject Harmony. I then outline a new occupation-based theory that completely avoids such conflicts. The central idea --- motivated by divine transcendence and immensity -- is God's all-pervading transcendence: God is weakly located everywhere but lacks any exact or entire location in spacetime.

Join us 5 minutes prior to the beginning of the session!

With best wishes,
