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.
