Are we all one? Mysticism for analytic metaphysicians
- Wednesday 10 October 2018 (13:00-14:00)
Philosophy Work in Progress Seminar Series 2018/19
- Speaker: Dr Nikk Effingham
- Title: Are we all one? Mysticism for analytic metaphysicians
The Philosophy department's work in progress seminar is an opportunity for the members of staff at Birmingham to present the material they are working on to each other and to the department's postgraduate students.
The seminar meets roughly on fortnightly Wednesdays from 13:00 to 14.00 in the ERI. All welcome!
Taking mysticism to be the claim that (at least) some people are other people (and, therefore, maybe someone is everyone else), I present an argument (similar to the argument for mereological universalism) showing that mysticism is true.
