Work in Progress
In progress | Going underground.
A paper about the role of general principles in grounding, disguised as a paper about the what-grounds-the-grounding-facts debate. Unfinished draft available upon request.
In progress | Humean, all too Humean.
A brief paper in which I unpack four different theses worth calling 'Humean', and argue that two pairs are in tension with each other. Available upon request.
In progress | Kinds and groups (working title).
What are kinds? Not what are natural kinds, but what are kinds, of which natural kinds are themselves a kind? After all, we are perfectly happy to talk about what kind of novels or cars we like. I lay out eleven desiderata on a theory of kindhood, and then point out that most of these are also desiderata on a theory of social groups. I argue that social groups are in fact kinds. (I have worked on this paper on and off for a while; it may be in pieces when you read this.)
