This site is for a special sort of truth-seeker. Wherever you come from, and whatever your view of things, you are building a worldview, brick by brick. You are not content to simply follow the crowds, or to play a rhetorical game for a team or tribe. You want truth. More of it. Wherever it is. Whatever it is. Your search gives you keys to unlock many doors for many people.
I hope these resources may serve you on your journey. You will find 2 new articles every week (until all Rasmussen's publications are listed).
I introduce new details in an argument for necessarily existing propositions.
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 provie a tool for expanding your knowledge of possibilities.
How can anything be about anything? See my proposal. Bonus: I solve Russell's propositions paradox along the way.
Pruss and I develop a "plurals" version of Russell's paradox of propositions. Why care about this? Everything hangs in the balance. Of course.
I present a Cantorian problem for type-identity (reductive) physicalism.
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.
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.
