Last time we didn't get to discuss how overlap should be informed by (or should inform) our views about extended simples. So we'll do that for the first half of class this week. Then we'll focus on the topic of how to formulate Three-Dimensionalism and Four-Dimensionalism. We will be interested in how potential formulations of views of persistence relate back to the mereological and locative issues we've covered.
