Abstract
Kim’s model of ‘functional reduction’ of properties is shown to fail in a class of cases from physics involving properties at different spatial levels. The diagnosis of this failure leads to a non-reductive account of the relation of micro and macro properties.
Keywords Emergence  Functional properties  Kim’s view of reduction  Micro/macro levels  Reduction  Singular Perturbations
