GR9658: Advance Topics in Philosophy of Mind | C. Peacocke
Abstract entities (numbers, sets, functions) and norms (norms for judgment and moral norms) raise multiple puzzles. Is their existence in some way dependent upon us and our choices and actions? If so, how? If not, what is it for these abstract entities and norms to exist? And how can we know about them? Do we have to give the same kind of answer for abstract entities as for norms? Do these questions have to be answered differently for different kinds of abstract entities, or for different kinds of norms? These are the questions we will be addressing.
