These are my two most recent publications:
- Dagher, I. (2023). “An inexplicably good argument for causal finitism.” International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 94: 199-211.
- Dagher, I. (2023). “Properties, Collections, and the Successive Addition Argument.” Philosophia 51: 1193-1199.
Here are some philosophical issues I’m currently writing on, thinking about, or interested in:
- Explanation-based arguments for causal finitism, in expansion of my most recent IJPR paper above
- Unifying “intrinsic” accounts of modality (e.g., Vetter (2015)’s “new actualism”) and “extrinsic” accounts (the standard possible-worlds semantics) in a way that sheds light on philosophical issues like free will compatibilism, modal epistemology, etc.
- The problem of evil, especially in relation to whether there are any metaphysical theses (say, super-essentialism about identity) that pave the way for new theodicies
I’m also always interested in normative ethics (particularly moral desert and population ethics), and the philosophy of law (particularly Constitutional interpretation and jurisprudence).
