Our project aims to critically examine a number of accounts of how (and if) we may reconcile what we know about ordinary objects with the unexpected things science has taught us about space, time, and the fundamental building blocks of nature. We anticipate generating new knowledge in metaphysics, exploiting the recent 'locative turn' to revitalise perennial questions about existence, persistence, and change.
Running from 2020–2023, Everything in its Place supports an international team of researchers in working on these issues. The project will provide scholarships to support postgraduate researchers, organise conferences and other events on the themes of the project, and produce scholarly publications. The project is based in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Adelaide. We are pleased to be contributing to the rich tradition of scientific metaphysics in Australian philosophy.
