Humean Supervenience, Composition as Identity and Quantum Wholes

Calosi, Claudio ; Morganti, Matteo

In: Erkenntnis, 2016, vol. 81, no. 6, p. 1173-1194

While defenders of these reductive theses (at least those who do not simply deny the metaphysical import of empirical data and their proposed interpretation)...
