Nature's Metaphysics : Laws and Properties, Paperback / softback Book

Nature's Metaphysics : Laws and Properties Paperback / softback


Nature's Metaphysics argues that a satisfactory philosophy of science requires a metaphysics that is based on the understanding that natural properties are essentially dispositional.

Alexander Bird develops a dispositional essentialist account of the laws of nature, defending the claim that laws are metaphysically necessary. Professional philosophers and advanced students working in metaphysics and the philosophy of science will find this book bothprovocative and stimulating.
