Philosophy of Nature and Quantum Reality
 

Authored by Ian J Thompson

It has long been puzzling what nature could be like such that quantum physics is its good description. Here the nature of events, processes, dispositions and substances are investigated within a philosophy of nature. A neo-Aristotelian metaphysics is constructed such that space, time, substances and quantum physics begin to make sense.
