“During my stay at CEFISES, I will work on a topic that I have stumbled upon but could not fully address during my PhD. My dissertation focused heavily on multiple realization and physicalist theories of the mind, which has led me to the more general problem of the ontological status of special sciences and the unity of sciences. I will pay specific attention to the differences between hard sciences and special sciences and how these differences impact the metaphysical status of scientific entities in individual sciences.”
