Titus-Hepp Lecture Series: Dr. Kris McDaniel, Syracuse

Lectures & Discussions
Date 
Friday, November 4, 2016
Time 

In this talk, Dr. McDaniel will defend a normative account of the distinction between fundamental and nonfundamental properties. On the proposed account, some normative properties are more fundamental than the property of being fundamental. Given this view, there is no need to ‘fit’ normativity into the natural world since normativity is already needed to even characterize the very joints of the natural world.

Kris McDaniel works primarily in metaphysics, and has published on ontology, persistence through time, composition, and modality. He also has interests in the history of philosophy and ethics.

All are welcome to attend. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
