Philosophical Studies 129 (1):119 - 136 (2006)
|Abstract||We tend to identify events by when, where, and how they occur, i.e. by the time at which they occur, the spatial location at which they occur, and the manner in which they occur. But, in most cases, we also tend to conceive of the specific time, spatial location, and manner in which they occur as only accidental to them. For instance, we think that an explosion that occurred at noon could have occurred one minute later, an inch closer to our home, and it could have been a darker shade of blue. Our meeting today could have occurred an hour later, in the room next door, and it could have involved a few more people than it did.|
