Composition as Identity: A New Approach (Martina Botti)

The Logic and Metaphysics Workshop will meet on May 13th from 4:15-6:15 in room 7314 of the CUNY Graduate Center for a talk by Martina Botti (Columbia).

Title: Composition as Identity: A New Approach

AbstractI argue that the debate on composition as identity – the thesis that any composite object is identical to its parts – is deadlocked because both the defenders and the detractors of the claim have so far defended and criticized respectively something that is not composition as identity. After having made clear how composition as identity should properly be understood, I will set forth a new strategy to defend it.
