The Viability of David Lewis's Theory of Humean Supervenience
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.
