The Ontological Autonomy Of The Chemical World
In the problem of the relationship between chemistry and physics, many authors take for granted the ontological reduction of the chemical world to the world of physics. The autonomy of chemistry is…

Why orbitals do not exist?
In this paper we will address the problem of the existence of orbitals by analyzing the relationship between molecular chemistry and quantum mechanics. In particular, we will consider the concept of…
What is Information?

Three different views of the concept of information are compared: the view of Fred Dretske's semantictheory of information, the perspective adopted by Peter Kosso in his interaction-information account of scientific observation, and the Syntactic approach of Thomas Cover and JoyThomas.
The Arrow of Time: From Universe Time-Asymmetry to Local Irreversible Processes
Abstract In several previous papers we have argued for a global and non-entropic approach to the problem of the arrow of time, according to which the “arrow” is only a metaphorical way of expressing…
A modal-Hamiltonian interpretation of quantum mechanics
A general theoretical framework for decoherence in open and closed systems
A general theoretical framework for decoherence is proposed, which encompasses formalisms originally devised to deal just with open or closed systems and the spin-bath model is developed in detail from the new perspective.
Particles in a Quantum Ontology of Properties
We propose a new quantum ontology, in which properties are the fundamental building blocks. In this property ontology physical systems are defined as bundles of type-properties (specified by algebras…
The cosmological origin of time asymmetry
In this paper, we address the problem of the arrow of time from a cosmological point of view, rejecting the traditional entropic approach that defines the future direction of time as the direction of…
