1. Two Intuitions and a Puzzle “Constitution” may be a philosophical term of art, but the idea of one thing’s being materially constituted by another thing (or other things) is one that ordinary folk are perfectly familiar with. When we talk explicitly of something’s being made up of, being made...
Linsky and Zalta present a possible way to reconcile the Barcan Formula with actualism by positing contingently non-concrete objects. However, it has been argued that an actualism based on the existence of contingently non- concrete objects is not genuinely actualist, because contingently...

The later Heidegger came to the conclusion that the history of philosophy is defined in terms of “oblivion” of Being (Seinsvergessenheit). For the later Heidegger, since the history of philosophy is defined by “oblivion,” metaphysics must be “overcome.” For Heidegger, the history of metaphysics...
This thesis aims to contribute to the study of the history of 20th century continental philosophy, centering in particular on Heidegger’s “being-historical” writings of the 1930s and the 1940s, with a special emphasis on his Contributions to Philosophy (of the Event). In particular, this thesis...
Buridan was a brilliant logician and, thanks to his many students who spread his teachings and writings throughout universities in Italy and central Europe, one of the most influential interpreters of Aristotle in the later MA. His logical masterwork, the Summulae de Dialectica, is a...
