Dans le cadre du projet de recherche (ANR) "Metaphysique des Sciences", nous recevons Matteo Morganti (Université de Rome 3) pour une conférence intitulée : "Dependence and Fundamentality between Metaphysics and science".
This paper focuses on the interplay between science and metaphysics with respect to certain issues concerning the hierarchical structure of reality. In particular, it has a twofold purpose. In a first, ‘negative’ section, some arguments for so-called priority monism, recently formulated by Jonathan Schaffer, are criticised. In a more constructive second section, it is suggested that new, even more revisionary, possibilities need to be taken seriously and further explored in view of careful philosophical analysis and scientific evidence – in particular, the possibility that there is no ultimate, ontologically fundamental level.
