Review: Andreas Hüttemann: what's wrong with microphysicalism? [Book Review]

Jonathan Schaffer
Rutgers University - New Brunswick
In What’s Wrong With Microphysicalism?, Andreas H üttemann argues against the ontological priority of the microphysical, in favour of a ‘pluralism’ that accepts physical systems of all scales as interdependent equals. This is thoughtful and original work, deploying an understanding of the relevant physics to mount a serious challenge to the dominant microphysicalist view.
