OOO Conference

I’m packed and ready to fly out tomorrow and attend the Metaphysics and Things conference at Claremont. It’s an exciting prospect to finally make one of these WRP conferences as I’ve meant to for the last couple of years, but not had the means. Having the discussion center around OOO is icing on the cake. If I had known earlier, I may have tried to make the conference at UCLA, but I don’t think I have time. The good news is that it will be streaming live.

As an appetizer, Harman and Shaviro have given a preview of the disagreement which will be discussed at their panel. It should be an exciting talk, as the conflict between Harman’s withdrawn objects and Shaviro’s emphasis on external relations is a problem I’m attempting to work through myself.
