Alex Steinberg

Supervenience - A Survey


ISBN: 978-3-88405-555-7

Price: €19.50 (including 19 % tax)


The paper gives a survey of the literature on supervenience. Different notions of supervenience like weak and strong, various forms of global and multiple domain supervenience are presented and their relations discussed. A final section reviews the connection of supervenience with the notion of metaphysical grounding and presents an argument to the effect that useful supervenience notions can be defined in terms of grounding.
