Novel Explanation and the Special Sciences: Lessons from Physics

Synopsis
Audio recording of a talk given by Eleanor Knox, who is a Lecturer in Philosophy at King’s College London, on 23rd January 2017. Knox’s work has two strands, one in the foundations of spacetime physics, and another in inter-theoretic relations in physics and science more generally. The two come together when thinking about emergent spacetimes in theories of quantum gravity; much of her work focuses on spacetime functionalism, an approach to the interpretation of spacetime theories that promises to help with the understanding of emergent spacetimes.
