Laws and Symmetry

Bas C. van Fraassen

A Clarendon Press Publication

In this book van Fraassen argues that no metaphysical account of laws can succeed. He analyzes and rejects the arguments that there are laws of nature, and argues that we should disregard the idea of law as an adequate clue to science.
