Balázs Gyenis (LSE): “Towards new notion(s) of physical possibility”

20 November, 2:00 pm3:30 pm

Abstract: In the first part of the talk we review and critically evaluate the received view of physical possibility. In the second part we sketch two alternative approaches – a metaphysical and an epistemic – to physical possibility which aim to be compatible with actualism, eternalism, humeanism, as well as with a simplistic inductive picture of confirming physical theories.
