Add a talk


We have three remaining slots for speakers and invite submissions that will address metaphysical questions about powerful qualities and their relation to powers and qualities. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

·      How can we understand the claim that properties are both dispositional and qualitative?

·      What is the proper definition of qualitativity and dispositionality in the context of the Powerful Qualities View?

·      How can we understand the relation between powerful qualities and the dispositions of their bearers?

·      What is the role of laws of nature in the context of the Powerful Qualities View?

·      Is Identity Theory the only viable version of the Powerful Qualities View?

Submissions should include a cover letter (with author's name, institutional affiliation, and the title of the paper) and a separate file with an extended anonymized abstract, up to 1000 words and suitable for a 40-minute talk (followed by 20 minutes Q&A).  

Submission deadline: 3rd of September 2023

Notification of acceptance: 15 September 2023
