I presented parts of my paper, The Argument from Metaphysical Teleology at the Rutgers University Mini-Conference on Multiverse, Theodicy, and Fine-Tuning. It was an enjoyable experience. I am grateful for the feedback I received, and for the time I was able to spend with fellow philosophers of physics and philosophers of religion. It was also humbling to be invited back to my alma mater to present alongside such renowned scholars as Valia Allori, Hans Halverson, and Jason Turner (among others).
My book project entitled Fundamental Causation: Physics, Metaphysics, and the Deep Structure of the World is under contract with Routledge Publishers. It will be both a new research monograph, and a new addition to their Routledge Studies in Metaphysics Series. Here is some of the relevant information:
Book Title: Fundamental Causation: Physics, Metaphysics, and the Deep Structure of the World
Book Category: Research Monograph
Book Publisher: Routledge Publishers (Taylor and Francis Group) . Routledge is "the world's largest academic publisher in the Humanities and Social Sciences..." (source).
Book Summary: Fundamental Causation addresses issues in the metaphysics of deterministic singular causation, the metaphysics of events, states, facts, preventions, and omissions, as well as the debate between causal reductionists and causal anti-reductionists. The book also pays special attention to causation and causal structure in physics. Weaver argues that causation is a two-place obtaining relation that is transitive, irreflexive, asymmetric, universal, intrinsic, and well-founded. He shows that proper causal relata are events understood as states of substances. He then proves that causation cannot be reduced to some non-causal base, and that the best account of that relation should be unashamedly primitivist about the dependence relation that underwrites its very nature. The book demonstrates a distinctive realist and anti-reductionist account of causation by detailing precisely how the account outperforms reductionist and competing anti-reductionist accounts in that it handles all of the difficult cases while overcoming all of the general objections to anti-reductionism upon which other anti-reductionist accounts falter. This book offers an original and interesting view of causation and will appeal to scholars and advanced students in the areas of metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of physics.

Abstract: I argue that the Carroll-Chen cosmogonic model does not provide a plausible scientific explanation of the past hypothesis (the thesis that our universe began in an extremely low-entropy state). I suggest that this counts as a welcomed result for those who adopt a Mill-Ramsey-Lewis best systems account of laws and maintain that the past hypothesis is a brute fact that is a non-dynamical law.
Acknowledgments: I would like to thank David Albert, Tom Banks, Barry Loewer, Don N. Page, Quayshawn Spencer, and Aron C. Wall for helpful comments on earlier drafts of the paper. I would like to thank the referees and editors with the Journal for General Philosophy of Science for helpful comments and suggestions. Special thanks to Anthony Aguirre, Robin Collins, and Matthew Johnson for valuable conversations about some of the arguments presented here. And let me express gratitude and thanks to Sean Carroll for kindly and patiently answering several of my questions about the Carroll-Chen model during the UC Santa Cruz Summer Institute for the Philosophy of Cosmology in the summer of 2013, and the Philosophy of Cosmology Tenerife (Spain) Conference of 2014.
