The Aristotelian Society presents:
Professor John Heil (WU, St Louis) – Aristotelian Supervenience
John Heil is professor of philosophy at Washington University in St Louis and Honorary Research Associate at Monash University. His work centers on topics in metaphysics and the philosophy of mind. He is interested in the extent to which medieval and early modern approaches to metaphysical issues might shed light on contemporary debates over the nature of substances, properties, and relations (especially causal relations), and truthmakers for modal truths. Many of these themes are addressed in his most recent book, The Universe as We Find It (Oxford, 2012).
