Beyond the completeness of physics: a preliminary groundwork for a dispositional emergentism
MetadataShow full item record
In recent years, the shape of the discourse concerning the structure and subsistence of fundamental properties has taken on new dimensions with respect to their synoptic framing of special science entities. Specifically, challenges to the completeness of physics stemming from evidence of non-linear emergence in the special sciences have attenuated the traditional reliance of accounts of fundamental properties as being derived from a base which takes for granted the fundamentality of physically compatible properties. As such, in the course of this paper, preliminary assumptions from which an account of a monistically dispositional picture of fundamental properties compatible with the non-linear emergent properties evidenced by special science entities might be developed will be explored such that both the dispositional monist program might be salvaged as well a potential basis developed from which non-linear, strongly metaphysically emergent dynamics might be synoptically provided for.
