The puzzles of non-existence remain as pressing today as as they were for the Pre-Socratics. Our apparent capacity to refer to non-existent objects immediately raises a host of ontological, epistemological and semantic questions. In what sense can there *be* non-existent entities? Is our reference to them genuine reference? Contemporary neo-Meinongianians seek to accommodate non-existence within the overall domain of so-being. Meanwhile, Fields of Sense ontology denies that there is any such overall domain. It sees the sense of 'existence' as essentially field-dependent, and so understands assertions of non-existence as necessarily indexed to particular fields. Not existing comes to mean: not existing over here.
To assess and compare the prospects for contemporary Neo-Meinongianism and FOS ontology, this workshop investigates the concepts of Everything and Nothing with Markus Gabriel and one of the most renowned and original Neo-Meinongianians, Graham Priest.
The workshop begins 17.06.2019, 9 a.m.
