Dorato, Mauro (2010) Physics and metaphysics: interaction or autonomy? [Preprint]
In this paper it is argued that if physics is to become a coherent metaphysics of nature, it needs an interpretation, namely (i) a clear formulation of its ontological/metaphysical claims and (ii) and a precise understanding of how such claims are related to the world of our experience, which is the most important reservoir of traditional, merely aprioristic metaphysical speculations. Such speculations − especially if conducted in full autonomy from physics, or imposed upon it “from the outside” − risk to turn analytic metaphysics into a “rigorous” but fully sterile intellectual game.
