The Power of Holes

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
Firstly I define a hole as a dependent matter-less endurant, which is a little modification of Casati and Varziā€™s definition. Adopting this definition, holes seem to invite three problems about causation: (1)causal closure, (2)ungrounded disposition and (3)causal overdetermination. I will defend my definition against all these problems by showing that holes are limiting cases of physical endurants rather than their opposition and that they have causal powers in a broad sense.
