Who's Afraid of Nagelian Reduction?

Erkenntnis 73 (3):393 - 412 (2010)
Abstract
We reconsider the Nagelian theory of reduction and argue that, contrary to a widely held view, it is the right analysis of intertheoretic reduction. The alleged difficulties of the theory either vanish upon closer inspection or turn out to be substantive philosophical questions rather than knock-down arguments
