about this item

New studies in the metaphysics of physics range from the philosophical consideration of the foundations of contemporary physics to a scientifically informed analysis of traditional metaphysical concerns. Among the topics are an empirically fundamentalist approach to ontology, quantum structure and space-time, particles in a quantum ontology of properties, essentialism and modern physics, symmetry and qualitativity, relational time, physicalism and the part-whole relation, the metaphysics of laws: dispositionalism versus primitivism, classical and quantum sources of randomness, and renormalization for philosophers.
