Abstract
[To be presented at PSA 2018] The gauge/gravity duality and its relation to the possible emergence of gravity from quantum physics has been much discussed. Recently, however, Sebastian De Haro has argued that the very notion of a duality precludes emergence, given what he calls the internal view of dualities, on which the dual theories are physically equivalent. However, I argue that De Haro's argument for the internal view is not convincing, and we do not have good reasons to adopt it. In turn, I propose we adopt the external view, on which dual theories are not physically equivalent, instead.
