The Software of the Universe: An Introduction to the History and Philosophy of the Laws of Nature
The Software of the Universe introduces the history and philosophy of the concept of Laws of Nature addressing both philosophers and scientists with an interest in the methodological and philosophical issues raised by their disciplines. The book reconstructs the main stages of the historical development of the idea of laws of nature and claims that an explanation of the mysterious effectiveness of mathematics in the description of the empirical world is also a key to understand the nature of laws and their function in our knowledge.
This book is a clear and well-written guide to the philosophy of laws of nature and offers a critical survey of the main positions debated in the current literature on the nature of laws of nature.
