Welcome to the webpage for the philosophy project Metaphysical Explanation, funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, and hosted by the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The project will run over the next 3 years (2017-2019), and involves a core of five researchers, and a scientific ‘board’ of nine. For more information about this project, who we are, and what we intend to do in the next few years, follow the links provided above.

In the News! Coming up: 2nd one-day workshop on the project’s theme, Sep 12, featuring presentations by the project’s core-members (including our newest addition: Andrew Brenner) and Ricki Bliss. Workshop website here.
