Oriel’s Colin Prestige Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy, Professor Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra, has published a new book, Two Arguments for the Identity of Indiscernibles, with Oxford University Press.
Professor Rodriguez-Pereyra has published extensively on metaphysics, on topics such as truth and truthmakers, nominalism, the identity of indiscernibles, nihilism, and early modern philosophy. He received the Philip Leverhulme Prize in 2001 and is also an associate editor for the journal Mind.
In his new book, Professor Rodriguez-Pereyra argues that there is no trivial version of the Principle of Identity of Indiscernibles and provides two positive arguments for the Principle: one based on broadly Humean considerations and the other based on ideas about what grounds the having of certain properties by objects.
The book is now available in major book stores.
