I am a graduate of University College, Oxford, a Visiting Professor at the University of Padua, and a Life Member of Clare Hall, Cambridge (not 'staff'). A more or less completely new version of the S.E.P. entry for 'OBJECT' appeared in the Fall 2010 Edition of the S.E.P. I am currently working on a project provisionally entitled 'The Metachemistry of Stuff' - a work on metaphysical and logico-semantic issues relating to the formal representation of sentences containing concrete non-count nouns (or 'mass nouns').
