There are a number of interesting events in Anna Marmodoro’s ERC funded project at Oxford this spring. This one features John Heil, who has an interesting new book coming out soon…
Powerful Qualities: A Workshop with John Heil
Organised by the Power Structuralism in Ancient Ontologies project
26 – 27 April 2012
Corpus Christi College
This two day workshop will explore the metaphysics of powers by engaging with the recent work of John Heil on this topic. Heil’s theory of powerful qualities will be investigated with particular attention to understanding how it compares with Power Structuralism, and what is distinctive in each theory. The workshop will include talks by John Heil, Anna Marmodoro and Alexander Kelly, and will also allow ample time for discussion of any issue from John Heil’s work.
