Reduction and Emergence: A Critique of Kim
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Philosophy.ORCID iD: 0000-0001-9771-3469
2009 (English)In: Philosophical Studies, ISSN 0031-8116, E-ISSN 1573-0883, Vol. 146, no 1, p. 93-116Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In a recent critique of the doctrine of emergentism championed by its classic advocates up to C. D. Broad, Jaegwon Kim (Philosophical Studies 63:31–47, 1999) challenges their view about its applicability to the sciences and proposes a new account of how the opposing notion of reduction should be understood. Kim is critical of the classic conception advanced by Nagel and uses his new account in his criticism of emergentism. I question his claims about the successful reduction achieved in the sciences and argue that his new account has not improved on Nagel’s and that the critique of emergentism he bases on it is question-begging in important respects.
