Laws & Powers in the Metaphysics of Science

Open Books

A little about NoMoS

NoMoS aims to break new ground by advancing a novel theoretical model of the status and necessity of the laws of nature. It will attempt a major reconceptualisation and synthesis of some of the most basic concepts within metaphysics of science by overcoming extant conceptions and by bringing the metaphysics of science in better contact with the current scientific image of the world. The core of this new theoretical model will be a unified approach, according to which both laws and causal powers play discrete and indispensable roles in specifying the nomological structure of the world.
