We invite registrations for attending the International Conference
Inductive Metaphysics is a comparatively new branch of metaphysics that justifies metaphysical principles by inductive or abductive inferences from empirical evidence, rather than by purely logico-conceptual considerations. This conference intends to give a representative picture of the state of the art and the current debate in inductive metaphysics.
