This year, the University of St Andrews’ Arché Philosophical Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics, and Epistemology will host a one-day online workshop on Identity and Individuation, which will take place on the 10th of June 2021.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together and promote research in the metaphysics of identity and individuation, and to draw connections with ongoing work in metaphysics, including but not limited to: the logical form and function of criteria of identity, identity and indiscernibility, identity and essence, identity and modality, the individuation of particulars and properties, intrinsic and extrinsic properties, and qualitative and non-qualitative properties, as well as assessments of the relative merits of the different criteria of identity for both particulars and properties on offer today.
