Seminar this week: Claudio Calosi

The Geneva Symmetry Group is happy to present a seminar by our own Claudio Calosi this Thursday:

Thursday, 7 March 2019, at 16:15 in room B002 (Bastions):

Claudio Calosi (Geneva): Relativistic persistence

Abstract: The paper presents a rigorous formulation of different metaphysics of persistence in relativistic spacetimes. Then, it addresses whether relativistic physics favors one metaphysics of persistence over another. It is argued that the relativistic argument is not conclusive, yet it puts considerable pressure on different variants of endurantism, roughly the view that objects persist by being wholly present at each time of their existence.
