Defining global supervenience


Steinberg, Alex (2014). Defining global supervenience. Erkenntnis, 79(2):367-380.

Abstract

What does it mean that certain properties globally supervene on others? The paper criticises the now standard way of spelling out the notion in terms of 1–1 correlations between world-domains and proposes a modification that escapes the difficulties. The new definition can secure the additional benefit of resisting an argument to the effect that global supervenience is theoretically dispensable
