James Weatherall (UC Irvine): “Some Philosophical Prehistory of the Earman-Norton Hole Argument”

James Weatherall is Professor of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine.

Recorded at The Hole Shebang workshop, LSE, 15 July 2016.

The Hole Shebang brought together philosophers and physicists to discuss a recent debate surrounding interpretations of the Hole Argument.

This was a “satellite” workshop held the day before Foundations 2016, the 18th UK/EU conference on foundations of physics. Both of which were hosted by LSE Philosophy.
