Book Description

August 31, 2010 3868380728 978-3868380729

Today, quantum field theory (QFT) is the best starting point for analyzing the fundamental building blocks of the material world. QFT yields a picture of the world that is at variance with central classical conceptions. The core of Kuhlmann’s investigation consists in the analysis of various ontological interpretations of QFT. Eventually, Kuhlmann proposes a dispositional trope ontology, according to which particularized properties and not things are the most basic entities.
