Morganti, Matteo (2007) Individual particles, properties and quantum statistics. In:  EPSA07: 1st Conference of the European Philosophy of Science Association (Madrid, 15-17 November, 2007).
Although there have been several attempts to resist this conclusion, it is commonly held that the peculiar statistical behaviour of quantum particles is due to their non-individuality. In this paper, a new suggestion is put forward: quantum particles are individuals, and the distinctive features of quantum statistics are determined by the fact that all the state-dependent properties described by quantum statistics are emergent relations.
