Best‐System Approaches

(p.54) III Best‐System Approaches
Geometric Possibility

Gordon Belot

This chapter examines a variety of modal relationalism that is analogous to the Humean best‐system account of laws of nature. It is argued that best‐system accounts face daunting difficulties: they have intuitively implausible consequences and rely on empirically unsupported psychological presuppositions.

Keywords:   substantivalismtionalism, modality, laws of nature, best‐system approaches
