|Title: Negative Properties|
|Abstract: There has been a recent resurgence in interest in negative facts. But discussion of negative properties is rare, in part because people are suspicious of the coherence of the idea of negative properties. This paper seeks to define the notion of a negative property in terms of causation by omission. We suggest that negative properties are those properties that cause by omission. Thus our conclusions are conditional: if there is anything that causes by omission, then, we contend, some of those things are negative properties.|
