Wednesday 28th October 2020, 1pm: Eidos PG Seminar: Extending Lewis's proposal, because apparently even Lewis did not go far enough?!

In a 2003 paper, Lewis found a way to square truthmaking with humeanism. In the postscript to this paper, Lewis and Rosen applied this strategy to negative existential statements they found that for the most part their strategy, dubbed “the Lewis-Rosen proposal”, was successful. However, they were left with some gaps. They also suggest that their proposal would be successful with any variety of modal realism. In this talk, I argue that a particular kind of modal realism — extended modal realism — can fill the gaps in the Lewis-Rosen proposal.
