I’ve added new versions of three new papers to my website. They are:
- The Role of Naturalness in David Lewis’s Theory of Meaning.
- Induction and Supposition.
- The Temporal Generality Problem. (This supersedes A reductio for reliabilism.)
There are also a couple of summer courses I’ve been asked to announce.
Problems of the Self at CEU.
The course aims to present the state of the art in research on the self from philosophy, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, sociology, and cognitive anthropology. Themes revolve around the nature of the self, as revealed through self-consciousness, body perception, action and joint action, and its embedding in society and culture.

It is directed at advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty working in philosophy, psychology, cognitive neuroscience and cognate disciplines.
