Full Text




In-Page Footnotes ("Sider (Ted) & Zimmerman (Dean) - Persistence Seminar")

Footnote 1: This is a while ago. Compare with "Look (Brandon C.) - The Metaphysics of Material Beings: Constitution, Persistence, and Identity", a more pedestrian, but slightly more recent (2008), attempt. See also the even earlier "Sider (Ted) - Persistence and Parthood Seminar".


BOOK COMMENT:

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 “draft ms” – maybe just see the earlier "Johnston (Mark) - Constitution is Not Identity".
