Colocation, Location, Multilocation, Self-Colocation
Some accounts of location leave conceptual space for a variety of unusual relations between objects and the regions they occupy, including the relations of multilocation and interpenetration. In this paper I show that countenancing both of these possibilities leads to a puzzle about whether an object can be colocated with itself. After teasing out the puzzle, I consider candidate solutions, and draw out some implications.
