Hi everyone -- I have posted Ted Parent's paper, "The Modal Ontological Argument Meets Modal Fictionalism" in our dropbox.com folder for discussion in our working paper group. Ted has noted to me that the paper is a bit rough, but that he could really use some feedback on it. So, with no further ado, I hereby open up Ted's paper for discussion in the comments section below.
Here, once again, are the paper group's rules and guidelines:
- The paper is posted over at Dropbox.com.
- In order to access it, you must email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for the login and password. Once you have these, just login into dropbox and download the paper.
- Barring unforseen and unfortunate circumstances, our dropbox login and password will be the same for all future working papers.
- The login, password, and working papers themselves are in no circumstance to be distributed to anyone. In order to maintain the integrity of our forum, I alone am authorized to distribute them.
- In order to maintain the safe and supportive integrity of the paper discussion, I will only distribute the login and password to registered members of The Philosophers' Cocoon.
- As always, any professional philosopher who wants to become a member of the Cocoon is welcome to email me to join. However, you must become a member to participate in the working paper group.
- Basic ground-rules for the paper discussion (which should simply proceed in the comments section below) are as follows:
- You must have access to -- and presumably have read! -- the paper in order to comment.
- Comments should aim to be helpful in nature. If you raise an objection, try to suggest potential way(s) to resolve it. The purpose of this group is to help our friends here at the Cocoon improve their papers, not to show off one's awesome refutation skills.
- Be a good dude/dude-ette. Do everything you can to make this a positive experience for the paper presenter.
Thanks, in advance, to everyone who participates!
