Siding with euthyphro: Response-dependence and conferred properties

Journal Article (Review)

I argue that a response-dependence account of a concept can yield metaphysical results, and not merely epistemological or semantical results, which has been a prevalent view in the literature on response-dependence. In particular, I show how one can argue for a conferralist account of a certain property by arguing that the concept of the property is response-dependent, if certain assumptions are made. © 2010 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
