PERSP Space & Time Workshop on the Open Future

Barcelona, 1-2 December 2011




Some of the questions that will be addressed in the workshop include:
-What does it mean to claim that the future is open?
-Are future contingent statements like "There will be a sea battle tomorrow" now true or false?
-Is the claim that future contingents are now true or false compatible with the claim that the future is open?
-What is the relation between future contingents and future ontology?
-What metaphysical picture is required in order to make sense of the claim that the future is open? Multiple, branching futures? A ‘thin red line’? Metaphysical indeterminacy? Presentism?
Confirmed Speakers:


Corine Besson, Merton College, Oxford
The workshop will have a 'read-ahead' format and papers will be circulated in advance. Those interested in attending should contact persp.management@gmail.com
Organized by Dan López de Sa & Stephan Torre, sponsored by PERSP.
