Spacetime as a fundamental and inalienable structure of fields
Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part B 32 (2):205-215 (2001)
This paper offers an alternative view of spacetime different from both substantivalism and relationism. Using basic ideas underlying the fiber bundle formulation of field theories, it illustrates the function of spacetime in individuating local fields. As the system of numerical identities for entities that we can individually refer to, spacetime is an intrinsic, indispensable, and inalienable structure of the physical world with distinct entities.
