  1. Jeffrey Grupp, , 2003.
    Relations pervade the theories of analytic metaphysics: philosophy of mind, philosophy of region, philosophy of causation, philosophy of math, philosophy of space and time, philosophy of physics, and theories of objects (bundle and substance theories). Many of the sorts of relations that (are alleged to) exist, according to these theories, are relations between or among non-collocated spatial entities (entities that do not occupy the same spatial region or regions), and between or among non-identical basic units of space. I argue that (...)

  2. Jeffrey Grupp, $9 At.
    I argue that relations between non identical times, such as the relations, earlier than , later than , or 10 seconds apart , involve contraction, and only co temporal relations are non contradictory, which would leave presentism the only non contradictory theory of time. The arguments I present are arguments that I have not seen in the literature.

  3. Jeffrey Grupp, Abstract Atomism.
    atomism involves point-sized philosophical atoms that are indistinguishable from one another, and that are nonphysical bits of energy that flash in and out of existence. In other words, they are nonphysical particles (hence the word "abstract"): they are not nonphysical in the way that some philosophers might believe a mind or number to be alleged to be nonphysical, but rather they are nonphysical merely because, I argue in an article, that they are ultimate building blocks that in no way can (...)

  6. Jeffrey Grupp, Projects in Metaphysics and Anti-Metaphysics.
    My research in metaphysical realism and analytic metaphysics consists mainly in attacks on analytic metaphysics. My reason for this is a result of the fact that I am a mereological nihilis t, a blob theorist , an atomist (philosophic atomist), and a specific sort of conceptualist (see below). The variety atomism I argue for is similar to the traditional atomism of some of the ancient Greek and ancient..

  7. Jeffrey Grupp, Sorites Issn 1135-1349.
    Discussion of, and reference to, properties pervades contemporary metaphysics, physics (e.g., the electron has charge), and ordinary language (the lion is sublime). But only a specialized group of a few hundred philosophers discuss the very specific details of what is involved in..

  8. Jeffrey Grupp, Some Questions About the Exemplification Tie Between Universals and Particulars.
    A connection between things and properties is required to hold things and properties together. Exemplification is such a connection. Exemplification is usually considered primitive, and therefore analysis of exemplification is nearly absent from the literature. I maintain that exemplification might not be primitive; and in giving a description of exemplification, I point out a new problem having to do with the issue of how things are tied to properties.

  10. Jeffrey Grupp (2006). God's Spatial Unlocatedness Prevents Him From Being the Creator of the Universe: A New Argument for the Nonexistence of God. Sophia 45 (1):5-23.
    I discuss the relations between God and spatial entities, such as the universe. An example of a relation between God and a spatial entity is the relation,causes. Such relations are, in D.M. Armstrong’s words, ‘realm crossing’ relations: relations between or among spatial entities and entities in the realm of the spatially unlocated. I discuss an apparent problem with such realm crossing relations. If this problem is serious enough, as I will argue it is, it implies that God cannot be the (...)

  11. Jeffrey Grupp (2006). Mereological Nihilism: Quantum Atomism and the Impossibility of Material Constitution. [REVIEW] Axiomathes 16 (3):245-386.
    Mereological nihilism is the philosophical position that there are no items that have parts. If there are no items with parts then the only items that exist are partless fundamental particles, such as the true atoms (also called philosophical atoms) theorized to exist by some ancient philosophers, some contemporary physicists, and some contemporary philosophers. With several novel arguments I show that mereological nihilism is the correct theory of reality. I will also discuss strong similarities that mereological nihilism has with empirical (...)

  12. Jeffrey Grupp (2005). The Impossibility of Relations Between Non-Collocated Spatial Objects and Non-Identical Topological Spaces. Axiomathes 15 (1):85-141.
    I argue that relations between non-collocated spatial entities, between non-identical topological spaces, and between non-identical basic building blocks of space, do not exist. If any spatially located entities are not at the same spatial location, or if any topological spaces or basic building blocks of space are non-identical, I will argue that there are no relations between or among them. The arguments I present are arguments that I have not seen in the literature.

    I argue that relations between non-identical times, such as the relations, earlier than, later than, or 10 seconds apart, involve contradiction, and only co-temporal relations are non-contradictory, which would leave presentism the only non-contradictory theory of time. The arguments I present are arguments that I have not seen in the literature.

  14. Jeffrey Grupp (2004). Problems with the Platonist Exemplification Tie Between Located Entities and an Unlocated Entity. Dialogue 43 (3):491-498.
    Selon une ontologie platonicienne, il faut qu’une exemplification platonicienne lie des particuliers physiques et un universel non localisé pour qu’i! y ait connexion entre propriété et choses. Dans cet article, je discute du lien d’exemplification platonicien, lequel a l’intéressante faculté de lier des entités localisées à une entité non localisée et donc, pour reprendre les mots d’Armstrong, la faculté de traverser le domaine du non spatialement localisé et celui du spatialement localisé. La littérature ne contient à peu près aucune discussion (...)
