Description

While dualities are part of physicists' toolboxes to construct theories, they have only relatively recently received the attention of philosophers. After giving several examples of dualities, I will discuss whether and if so how dualities bear on old philosophical issues: in particular, on the questions of theoretical equivalence, under-determination, and scientific realism.
