Home / Projects / Metaphysics and Logic Research Group


The Metaphysics and Logic (M&L) Research Group focuses on a range of issues in 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 logics, logical pluralism, the interplay of proof theory and model theory, and more.

Meetings in Summer 2024: the group meets in Edgecliffe Room G03 every Wednesday, 3pm to 5pm, from 3rd April to 3rd July 2024. For details of the current programme, see the Arché Calendar.
