Full Description: The Department of Philosophy welcomes Ben Caplan presenting "Brutal Propositions." A view of propositions is brutal if it appeals to primitive entities, or brute facts, or both. In this paper, we set out our preferred brutal view, one that is consistent with the claim that propositions have parts. Caplan is a professor in the Philosophy Department at Ohio State University. He earned his doctorate at UCLA and taught at the University of Manitoba before coming to Ohio. He works mainly in metaphysics. Free and open to the public.
