Beschreibung

What is the origin of the concept of a law of nature? How much does it owe to theology and metaphysics? To what extent do the laws of nature permit contingency? Are there exceptions to the laws of nature? Is it possible to give a reductive analysis of lawhood, or is it a primitive?

Twelve new essays by an international team of leading philosophers take up these and other central questions on the laws of nature, whilst also examining some of the most important intuitions and assumptions that have guided the debate over laws of nature since the concepts invention in the seventeenth century.

Laws of Nature spans the history of philosophy and of science, contemporary metaphysics, and contemporary philosophy of science.

The book manifests a wide diversity of viewpoints and approaches. The articles themselves are timely and of a consistently very high quality, which speaks to the virtues of Ott and Patton's editorial work, and the book can truly be said to have something for everyone who is interested in laws of nature. Jason Winning, Metascience
