Published: 2004-09-01 | ISBN: 0415311284, 0415407826 | PDF | 248 pages | 0.81 MB
Mumford outlines a major new theory of natural laws. His book begins with the question of whether there are any genuinely law-like phenomena in nature. The discussion addresses questions currently being debated by metaphysicians such as whether the laws of nature are necessary or contingent and whether a property can be identified independently of its causal role.
