Abstract

The Ehlers-Pirani-Schild (EPS) constructive axiomatisation of general relativity, published in 1972, purports to build up the kinematical structure of that theory from only axioms which have indubitable empirical content. It is, therefore, of profound significance both to the epistemology and to the metaphysics of spacetime theories. In this article, we consider extensions of the EPS axiomatisation towards quantum general relativity based upon quantum mechanical inputs (Part III). There are two companion papers, in which we provide a pedagogical walkthrough to the EPS axiomatisation (Part I), and discuss the significance of constructive approaches to spacetime structure more generally (Part II).
