New Readings

For the next meeting please read Scott Soames's "Actually". There should be enough overlap with views discussed in Divers for you to formulate objections to and questions about Soames's view. So please bring objections to and questions about Soames's view to the next meeting.

After Soames, I had previously proposed we read a paper by Kit Fine. But there's a brand new paper by Otavio Bueno and Edward Zalta, "A Defense of Actualist Realism", that is a direct response to Divers. So I think we should look at it before looking at Fine (and before we forget too much of Divers).

Then I think we should read Kit Fine's "The Problem of Possibilia".
