News Philosophy Major Has Paper Accepted

​Dylan Buller

​​One of our majors, Dylan Buller, has had a paper accepted by Prometheus, the undergraduate journal of Johns Hopkins University.  The paper is titled, "The Nuclear Trope Bundle Theory: A Property Dualist, Substance Physicalist Response to Susan Schneider."  This is exciting news, not just for Dylan, but for the Philosophy Department, as well. 

Dylan writes the following abstract about his paper:  "This paper seeks to identify a philosophy of mind that is compatible with both property dualism and substance physicalism. Many philosophers have contributed to the discussion of what is believed to comprise the mind, and Susan Schneider’s paper “Why Property Dualists Must Reject Substance Physicalism” (2010) claims that there is no philosophy of mind that can accommodate both property dualism and substance physicalism. This paper examines her worries about such a stance, and proposes a new philosophy of mind, the “nuclear trope bundle theory,” that satisfies property dualist/substance physicalist criteria while evading Schneider’s doubts about the possibility of such a theory.
