  1. Leyes y hacedores de verdad: una interpretación crítica del realismo nomológico de M. Tooley.Susana Mafalda Lucero & Roberto Azar - 2015 - Filosofia Unisinos 16 (2):119-130.
    La tesis principal defendida por Michael Tooley en su artículo The Nature of Laws sostiene que son las relaciones entre universales los auténticos hacedores de verdad de los enunciados nomológicos y de las leyes. Esta tesis bien podría no atraer a gran cantidad de filósofos, puesto que implica un realismo fuerte con respecto a los universales. En nuestro propio caso, creemos que son más graves algunas inconsistencias en las cuales cae el autor a la hora de fundamentar su concepción o (...)

    Non-Humean accounts of the metaphysics of nature posit either laws or powers in order to account for natural necessity and world-order. We argue that such monistic views face fundamental problems. On the one hand, neo-Aristotelians cannot give unproblematic power-based accounts of the functional laws among quantities offered by physical theories, as well as of the place of conservation laws and symmetries in a lawless ontology; in order to capture these characteristics, commitment to governing laws is indispensable. On the other hand, (...)

  • Essence and the Inference Problem.Ashley Coates - 2019 - Synthese 198 (2):915-931.
    Discussions about the nature of essence and about the inference problem for non-Humean theories of nomic modality have largely proceeded independently of each other. In this article I argue that the right conclusions to draw about the inference problem actually depend significantly on how best to understand the nature of essence. In particular, I argue that this conclusion holds for the version of the inference problem developed and defended by Alexander Bird. I argue that Bird’s own argument that this problem (...)

  • It is the Business of Laws to Govern.Jonathan Schaffer - 2016 - Dialectica 70 (4):577-588.
    Non-Humean accounts of lawhood are said to founder on the Inference Problem, which is the problem of saying how laws that go beyond the regularities can entail the regularities. I argue that the Inference Problem has a simple solution – the Axiomatic Solution – on which the non-Humean only needs to outfit her laws with a law-to-regularity axiom. There is a remaining Epistemic Bulge, as to why one should believe that the posit-so-axiomatized is to be found in nature, but the (...)
