The Metaphysics of Quantity conference is a three day conference to be held at the New York University Philosophy Department, with support from the New York Institute of Philosophy, on the weekend of May 1st through May 3rd, 2015. It aims to showcase new work on the nature of quantitative properties and relations. By quantities we mean to include physical magnitudes—like mass, electric charge, or velocity—as well as other gradable features—like spicyness, population density, temperature, (aesthetic/moral) value. The Metaphysics of Quantity Conference will include both invited talks and talks based on submitted papers, as well as a keynote address by Brent Mundy of Syracuse University.
