A reminder that today Bart Streumer (Groningen) will be giving a paper
entitled “Reduction without supervenience” (abstract below) at the
Serious Metaphysics Group.
As usual, the seminar will run from 4.30 to 6.00pm in the Philosophy
Faculty Board Room.
Hope to see you there,
According to non-reductive realism, there are irreducibly normative
properties. There is a well-known argument against this view that
appeals to the following claim about supervenience: for all possible
worlds W and W*, if the instantiation of descriptive properties in W and
W* is exactly the same, then the instantiation of normative properties
in W and W* is also exactly the same. Some non-reductive realists try to
resist this argument by rejecting this claim about supervenience. In
this talk, I give a very similar argument against their view that does
not appeal to any claim about supervenience.
