Emergence: A Philosophical Account

Oup Usa (2016)

Authors
Paul Humphreys
University of Virginia
Abstract
Emergence develops a novel account of diachronic ontological emergence called transformational emergence and locates it in an established historical framework. The author shows how many problems affecting ontological emergence result from a dominant but inappropriate metaphysical tradition and provides a comprehensive assessment of current theories of emergence.
