Workshop on Hyperintentional Metaphysics
The University of St Andrews Arché Philosophical Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics and Epistemology will be hosting a Workshop on Hyperintentional Metaphysics, which will take place on the 17th of June 2021.
The aim of this Workshop is to bring together and promote research from the area of Hyperintensional Metaphysics, and to draw connections with ongoing work in Metaphysics, including (but not limited to): causation, essence, grounding, explanation, the individuation of propositions and properties, intrinsic and extrinsic properties, conditionality, impossible worlds, and truthmaking. Further, other areas up for discussion also include: questions regarding the metaphysical status of hyperintensional phenomena, objections against hyperintensional analyses, or kinds of analyses, as well as assessments of the relative merits of the different accounts of hyperintensional metaphysics on offer today.
