Spacetime Functionalism Conference
Cathedral of Learning 1008, April 1st-2nd
Spacetime Functionalism holds that spacetime is spacetime by virtue of the role it plays with respect to other physics. It promises to help with certain interpretational puzzles, including some of those arising in quantum gravity. But the exact kind of functionalism involved, the extent to which it is helpful and the role itself are all contested. This conference aims to make progress on these questions.
