Prerequisites for a consistent framework of quantum gravity
Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part B 32 (2):181-204 (2001)
An ontological approach to the analysis of conceptual frameworks of physical theories is introduced and then applied to the case of quantum gravity. The tension between the theoretical constraints posed, respectively, by general relativity and quantum field theory, is analysed. A possible solution to the difficulties created by the tension, based on the notion of ontological synthesis, is suggested.
