Submitted Talks Accepted for Presentation at the Metaphysics of Quantity Conference

Countdown: 1 Month 0 Days until the Metaphysics of Quantity Conference at NYU!

We are pleased to announce that we have selected four papers, submitted earlier this year, for presentation at the Metaphysics of Quantity Conference at NYU (Sponsored by the New York Institute of Philosophy), this May 1st through the 3rd. There were many submissions of extremely high quality, and it was very difficult to narrow it down to four. The papers submitted covered a range of topics, engaging with many different aspects of the metaphysics of quantity, quantitative properties, physical magnitudes.

The four papers accepted for presentation are:

  • “Intrinsic Properties of Properties” by Sam Cowling (Denison)
  • “Reductionism about Physical Magnitudes” by Marco Dees (Rutgers)
  • “Against Comparativism about Mass in Newtonian Gravity” by Niels Martens (Oxford)
  • “The Metaphysics of Dimensional Analysis” by Brad Skow (MIT)

The organizers would like to thank all those who responded to the call for papers.
