The Aristotelian Society presents:

Professor Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra (Oxford) – Resemblance Nominalism, Conjunctions and Truthmakers

Resemblance Nominalism is a theory according to which there are no universals and no tropes. What theories of universals and tropes explain by invoking universals and tropes, Resemblance Nominalism explains by invoking resembling particulars and sets, but sets, although abstract, are particular nevertheless.

Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra is the author of Resemblance Nominalism (Oxford University Press, 2002) and co-editor of Real Metaphysics (Routledge, 2003). He has written many articles on metaphysics and early modern philosophy. He is a Fellow and Tutor at Oriel College, University of Oxford.
