Humean perspectives on structural realism

In F. Stadler (ed.), The Present Situation in the Philosophy of Science. Springer 381--397 (2010)
Abstract
The paper is a kind of opinionated review paper on current issues in the debate about Structural Realism, roughly the view that we should be committed in the structural rather than object-like content of our best current scientific theories. The major thesis in the first part of the paper is that Structural Realism has to take structurally derived intrinsic properties into account, while in the second part key elements of aligning Structural Realism with a Humean framework are outlined.
