  1. Thinking Carefully About Quantum Information.Armond Duwell - 2014 - Metascience 23 (3):485-488.
    The development of quantum information theory over the last 20 years has produced a plethora of interesting new results and along with them a host of claims have been made by physicists and philosophers about how quantum information theory helps us understand the quantum world. When one examines such claims with any attention to detail, it is quite obvious that radically different and incompatible claims are being made about the quantum world. Christopher Timpson’s Quantum Information Theory and the Foundations of (...)

  • Empirical Consequences of Symmetries.D. Wallace & Hilary Greaves - 2014 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 65 (1):59-89.
    It is widely recognized that ‘global’ symmetries, such as the boost invariance of classical mechanics and special relativity, can give rise to direct empirical counterparts such as the Galileo-ship phenomenon. However, conventional wisdom holds that ‘local’ symmetries, such as the diffeomorphism invariance of general relativity and the gauge invariance of classical electromagnetism, have no such direct empirical counterparts. We argue against this conventional wisdom. We develop a framework for analysing the relationship between Galileo-ship empirical phenomena on the one hand, and (...)
