Tags: Immaterialism , Materialism, Non-materialism 2013 Philosophy Essay Prize on Materialism. The Royal Institute of
Philosophy and Cambridge University Press are pleased to announce the 2013 Philosophy Essay Prize. Entries may address the topic in a variety of ways. To what extent do theories in philosophy of logic and mathematics, as well as in metaphysics, philosophy of mind and axiology, require admitting non-material entities into their ontologies? Materialism has a contradictory, immaterialism, and a contrary, non-materialism. How might these be distinguished? How might non- or im-material entities be identified and individuated? Can non-material characteristics
inhere in material substances, and can material characteristics inhere in non-material substances? If not, is attribute dualism
(pluralism) combined with substance monism incoherent? These are among the themes that might be addressed.
Materialism, Non-materialism and Immaterialism
