Call for Papers: Special Issue of
The current special issue of Crítica: Revista Hispanoamericana de Filosofía is about contemporary logical, scientific, and metaphysical disputes among substance, fact, and structure ontologies. Possible topics for submissions include among others: What is the question of ontology? Is the world a world of substances, facts or structures? Are ordinary objects substances, structures, or facts? Are substances more ontologically simple and independent than facts and structures? Is the division ‘substance-accident’ more fundamental than ‘fact-constituent’ and ‘structure-relation’? Is the Neo-Aristotelian ‘four-category ontology’ better than the ‘two-category ontology’ of Factualism and the one-category ontology of Structuralism? What in the world makes truths true: substances, facts, or structures? Do substances have more explanatory power in science than facts and structures? Crítica, Revista Hispanoamericana de Filosofía, is published by the Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
Deadline for submissions: December 1, 2018.
