The Metaphysics of Hyperspace

Hud Hudson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

A receptacle is a region of space possibly exactly occupied by a material object. This chapter defends the Liberal View of Receptacles, according to which absolutely every region is a receptacle, regardless of its dimensionality or topology. With the assistance of certain principles of composition, recombination, and simplicity, three prominent rival theories (theories according to which necessarily, all material objects are topologically open or topologically closed or at least three dimensional) are contested.

Keywords:   composition, dimensionality, regions, receptacles, simples, topology, Liberal View
