Barry Loewer of Rutgers University will be presenting The Mentaculus Vision in the UMass Philosophy Colloquium in Bartlett 206 at 3:30 p.m. Friday, April 10. Everyone is welcome – a description* of his work is below:
I will describe a proposal for the structure for a fundamental physical theory that makes connections between statistical mechanics, cosmology, the metaphysics of time, laws, objective probabilities, counterfactuals and causation, and some issues in epistemology.
*This is the abstract for a talk of the same name that he was supposed to give at Rutgers last week. An abstract for the current talk is not posted.
