dc.description.abstract <p>I present a defense of David Lewis's metaphysical theory of Humean Supervenience. I provide novel motivations for his theory, and look to current physical science research for support of the metaphysical theory. I draw heavily on analogies between Humean Supervenience and classical discussions of the nature of space-time. I also defend Humean Supervenience against four major philosophical objections using considerations from physics and metaphysics.</p> en_US
