A World without Particles or Forces

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor Richard Healey
Chair: Professor John Worrall

Recorded on 14 May 2009 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

Physicists talk about 'elementary particles'. But do particles exist? The Newtonian world depended on forces between particles, but the real world may be much stranger. Richard Healey is professor of philosophy at the University of Arizona.
