Metaphysics
Some fragments on metaphysics.
Introduction
We discuss some ideas about what "possible worlds" might be, partly to elucidate the character of logical necessity, and partly as an approach to metaphysics and the philosophy of science.
Notes on space and time and the theory of relativity.
A philosophical discussion of metaphysical ontology.
I am at present thinking about physics from two distinct but connected points of view. I am first of all trying to understand the world, as a philosopher might, as it is described by modern physics. Secondly I am trying to understand how to formalise physics and also perhaps to make some progress towards achieving a formalisation. As befits a primarily philosophical enterprise, my conception of it is vague and fluid. This is my best attempt to present the enterprise as I think of it at present.
