The ontological debate on the nature of properties is alive as ever. Mainly, they are viewed either as universals or tropes (abstract particulars), an alternative with an immediate impact on what events are taken to be. Although much inquiry in philosophy of mind is done without a full awareness of it, some recent works suggest that the choice may have far-reaching consequences on central topics of this discipline, e.g., token physicalism, multiple realisability, mental causation, perception, introspection, self-awareness. This book explores the extent to which this is true with novel contributions by philosophers who have played a major role in bringing to the fore this interplay of foundational metaphysics and philosophical psychology and by other experts in these fields. Contributors (beside the editors): John Heil (Washington University in St. Louis), Anna-Sofia Maurin (Lund University), E. Jonathan Lowe (University of Durham), David Robb (Davidson College), Ausonio Marras (University of Western Ontario) & Juhani Yli-Vakkuri (McGill University).Biographie de l'auteur :
