    Incomplete, but Real.Tian Yu Cao - 2014 - Epistemology and Philosophy of Science 41 (3):72-81.
    Various theories of referent are critically but briefly surveyed from the perspective of structural realism; a constructivist version of structural realist account of referent is outlined, and its implications for history of science and for descriptive metaphysics are briefly indicated.

    Representation or Construction?Tian Yu Cao - 2001 - The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 2001:115-123.
    In this essay, I argue that the basic entities in the causally organized hierarchy of entities that quantum field theory describes are not particles but fields. Then I move to discuss, from the perspective of a structural realist, in what sense and to what degree this theoretical construction of fields can be taken as an objective representation of physical reality.
