Minimal Relationalism, Structuralism and the Grasp of Spatial PropertiesFarid Masrour (University of Wisconsin, Madison), Farid Masrour (University of Wisconsin, Madison)
We are pleased to invite you to a talk by Farid Masrour (Wisconsin) on Dec. 11th, 10 AM EST/3PM GMT:
Minimal Relationalism, Structuralism and the Grasp of Spatial Properties
Minimal relationalism is the view that perceptual experiences are constituted by three-place relations between subjects, ways of perceiving, and object-property complexes. Under minimal relationalism, although external objects and properties enter the constitution of perceptual experience, they only make a causal contribution to its phenomenal character. The phenomenal character of experience is grounded in ways of perceiving. This talk develops a specific version of minimal relationalism by providing a structuralist account of the ways of perceiving associated with spatial properties. I then show that the view can account for the role of experience in providing us with a grasp of spatial properties.
The talk is part of Perceiving Properties in a World of Objects' seminar series. To obtain the zoom code for the talk or information about other acitvities within the Project, you can visit:
