Some Links

In the comments to my post on metaphysical vagueness, Andrew Bacon and Robbie Williams raise some pretty good objections to my arguments against vague existence. I think those are good objections, and the argument I wrote in that post doesn’t work. So this is a retraction of it.

On a more positive note, here are a couple of things happening around the web.

Ben Eggleston has a good review of Martin Peterson’s new textbook on decision theory.

And we have several new Compass papers out. Here they are:

The Klement papers are a big part of the reason that I’ve been talking about the semantic paradoxes around here so much, and I particularly recommend them.

    Thanks for the plug, Brian.

    I should say that I deliberately avoided the phase “semantic paradoxes”. I actually think the line between logical and semantic paradoxes is wuzzier than most people seem to think, and most of the ones I discuss there are near that line. (And some are clearly on the side of logical paradoxes.) They involve meanings in the sense of “things meant”, but none involve the meaning relation, or language, or belief. It’s relevant to assessing Ramsey’s criticisms of Russell’s motivation for ramification.

    Gregory Landini goes further. See “Russell’s Separation of Logical and Semantic Paradoxes and Its Significance for Logical Atomism,” Revue Internationale de Philosophie, 2003.
