The Research Seminar Series in Philosophy invites you to a seminar with Martín Abreu Zavaleta, "Learning about identity".
According to a standard picture of information, to gain new information is to exclude possibilities that one had not yet excluded. This picture of has trouble explaining why some claims about identity can be informative. After all, claims about identity are necessarily true if true at all. Thus, no true identity claim will exclude any possibilities that I had not already excluded. This talk explores an implementation of the standard picture that attempts to explain why claims about identity can be informative.
All interested are welcome to participate in this seminar.
This seminar is held online in Zoom. Link for participation will be distributed by email to the seminar distribution list. If you wish to participate but are not on this list you can get the link by contacting Pär Sundström, see below.
