I tried to find the Dorst presentation online with no success. This is some sort of philosophy having to do with miners? As in people digging riches from the earth? I’m curious to know more.Report

It’s referring to the problem discussed in Ifs and Oughts by Kolodny and MacFarlane. An abstract of Dorst’s paper can be found here (https://kevindorst.mit.edu/research).Report
