Home / Projects / Metaphysics and Logic


The Metaphysics and Logic group focuses on a range of issues connecting logic and metaphysics: quantification and ontological commitment; identity and indiscernibility; modality and dependence; plurals and groups; mereology and masses; hyperintensionality for properties and propositions; natural and social kinds; non-classical logic, logical pluralism, the interplay of proof theory and model theory; and more.

Seminars: The group meets this semester from 15:00-17:00 each Monday.  For details of the current program and venue see the Arché Calendar.
