"Boxing Philosophers" - Problems of Metaphysical Modality and its Epistemology
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
There are few topics as central to contemporary Analytic Philosophy as that of Metaphysical Modality. Philosophers have known, at least since Lewis though probably longer, just how powerful the tools of Modality are to almost every aspect of philosophical enquiry. As a result of this, modal notions have become ubiquitous in modern Analytic Philosophy. But Metaphysical Modality is not without its problems. Epistemic, Metaphysical, Conceptual and Formal objections abound the Philosophy of Modality. If and how these problems can be met is productive and open research question and the topic of this year’s Vienna Forum for Analytic Philosophy (WFAP) Graduate Conference.
