I introduce new details in an argument for necessarily existing propositions.
I develop a theory of aboutness. Bonus: I solve Russell's propositions paradox along the way.
I present a new argument for the thesis that there is a necessarily existing, causally powerful something.
I show how to deduce the existence of a necessary being from certain principles of possibility.
I present a Cantorian problem for type-identity (reductive) physicalism.
Joshua Rasmussen, Ph.D., specializes in questions about existence and minds. He is the author of the books Defending the Correspondence Theory of Truth (Cambridge University Press, 2014) and Necessary Existence (with Pruss; Oxford University Press, 2015).
Current projects include a dialogue about the foundation of existence, Is God the Best Explanation of Things?, with co-author Felipe Leon, and an autobiographical journey through the depths of reason, How Reason Can Lead to God.
Rasmussen values collaboration across disciplines and perspectives. He lives in Azusa, California, with his wife, Rachel, and their four children.
I have a book coming out on the foundation of existence (now available for pre-order). In this book, I explain why I think the foundation of existence would have resources to explain every dimension of reality, including minds, matter, morals, mathematics, and reason itself.
