Persistence

Topic

We will focus on the topic of how to formulate Three-Dimensionalism and Four-Dimensionalism. If we have time, we will also look at a central argument for each view. But mostly, our focus will be on how potential formulations of views of persistence relate back to the mereological and locative issues we've covered.
