In-Page Footnotes

Footnote 1: I have replaced Sider’s references by links to whatever I have on these papers. Where there’s no link, I seem not to have the paper in question (and have been unable to find it on-line).

Footnote 2: This is a reference to "Sider (Ted) - Four-dimensionalism: An Ontology of Persistence and Time", which was “under development” in 1998, when this series of seminars was given. I assume the chapter numbering and contents are as subsequently published.

Footnote 6: In my edition, this corresponds to the first few pages of Section 4.2 “Against Overlap” of "Lewis (David) - Counterparts or Double Lives".
