Metaphysics RG

The Metaphysics Reading Group is active again. It is currently reading Laurie Paul's forthcoming manuscript on causation. The group may continue after finishing that manuscript.

Jonathan Schaffer leads the group. He says that not much is background is required, but the group is now about 100 pages in to Paul's manuscript, so anyone wishing to join the group now would do well to read that first.

The group typically meets on Wednesdays in the Benjamin Library (in the department), between 11am and 1pm.
