Abstract

The gauge/gravity duality and its relation to the possible emergence (in some sense) of gravity from quantum physics has been much discussed. Recently, however, Sebastian De Haro (2017) has argued that the very notion of a duality precludes emergence, given what he calls the internal view of dualities, on which the dual theories are physically equivalent. However, I argue that De Haro's argument for the internal view is not convincing, and we do not have good reasons to adopt it. In turn, I propose we adopt the external view, on which dual theories are not physically equivalent, instead.
