This semester's class meetings are almost over. The professor finished his lecture material today, so our last meeting next week will be an open format thing where we ask questions, revisit earlier stuff, etc. Our paper is due mid-June. The class was condensed, time-wise, in that we met twice a week for the second half of the semester. So we have an extra month to work on the paper.
I had thought of doing a compare and contrast kind of thing between Armstrong and Chisholm's state of affairs metaphysics. Not sure what the focus would be, although I was considering the former's rejection of and the latter's acceptance of non-obtaining states of affairs. That idea was shelved bc the professor felt he didn't know Chisholm well enough to grade it. So we decided upon a compare and contrast between Armstrong and Lewis. I haven't read a lot of Lewis so this will be something new for me. He suggested I read two Lewis articles, New Work for a Theory of Universals and Against Structural Universals. Printing them out, I felt like I should plant a tree in return. On to it, then.
