Physical action without interaction

Erkenntnis 70 (3):365 - 377 (2009)
In "Action without interaction" I showed that one might act on a physical system , without interacting with it, by the procedure of making it disappear. This paper presents further extensions and a critique of that result. These extensions show why physical actions without interaction are possible, while underscoring the philosophical fertility of a characteristic approach to the actual infinite inaugurated by Benardete
