Author’s Abstract

  1. It has been suggested that many philosophical theses — physicalism, nominalism, normative naturalism, and so on — should be understood in terms of ground.
  2. Against this, Ted Sider has argued that ground is ill-suited for this purpose.
  3. Here I develop Sider’s objection and offer a response. In doing so I develop a view about the content of these philosophical theses, and hence about how to understand disagreements over them.
