Powerful Qualities: A Workshop with John Heil


26 – 27 April 2012

Rainolds Room
Corpus Christi College
Oxford

Organised by the Power Structuralism in Ancient Ontologies project

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.
