The Fundamental Structure of the World - PHILO355 (2022)

What is there? What makes up the furniture of reality? What about holes, chairs, possible worlds, fictional characters, musical works, temporal parts, races, or genders? These are central questions within metaphysics that we explore in this paper. We also explore higher-level questions: what is it to exist, and how should we go about determining what there is? These are central questions within metametaphysics. Students in this paper will have an opportunity to deepen their understanding of metaphysics and of how metaphysics should be done.
